Children in the Analogue and Digital Sphere

TU Dresden | Semester overlapping Children in the Analogue and Digital Sphere 2024

Empowerment and Protection

Welcome ! 


This seminar "Children in the Analogue and Digital Sphere" is a virtual international collaboration with the University of Coimbra in Portugal. 

It will therefore take place online only (on the platform zoom). Both students from Dresden and students from Coimbra will present their findings from different perspectives. All seminar papers have to be written in English language, so that they are accessible for everybody. Papers will have to be handed in before the presentations and read in preparation for the seminar.

We will be looking at the position of children in the data and platform economy. Children are a particularly vulnerable group. However, they also have rights to make use of (digital) opportunities and participate online. Relevant norms include Data Protection Law, especially the GDPR, and the Digital Services Act.
