International: UN Special Rapporteur announces call for contributions on privacy and children
The United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner Special Rapporteur on the Right to Privacy announced, on 31 July 2020, a call for contributions examining the privacy rights of children and how this right interacts with the interests of other actors as the child develops the capacity for autonomy. In particular, the Special Rapporteur outlined that the submissions should relate to privacy rights of children and their autonomy in any of the following or relevant areas, including online and offline in the social, recreational, educational, justice, and health spheres, strengths and challenges of 'age-based' and 'age-verification' approaches, and governmental or other structures, including regulatory arrangements, established to advance the human rights of the child.
