How society can realize children’s rights in a digital age is gathering increasing attention from policy makers and researchers. Professor Sonia Livingstone is leading the Digital Futures Commission with the 5Rights Foundation to contribute to this effort. This is a new and exciting research collaboration of unique organisations that invites innovators, policy makers, regulators, academics and civil society, to unlock digital innovation in the interests of children and young people.
