    A summary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child

    The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is a human rights treaty setting out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children. The Convention defines a child as any human being under the age of eighteen, unless the age of majority is attained earlier under a state’s own domestic legislation. Nations that ratify the Convention are bound to it by international law. It was adopted and opened for signature on 20 November 1989 and came into force on 2 September 1990. Currently, 193 countries are party to it, including every member of the United Nations except Somalia, South Sudan, and the United States.

  • Media in the Great Lakes Region foster social dialogue

    Media in the Great Lakes Region foster social dialogue

    Fostering dialogue in societies torn apart by ethnic conflicts is a contribution to peace-building processes in general and to reconciliation, trauma healing and positive changes in particular. This article lifts up some of the media initiatives of organisations in the Great Lakes Region that contribute to engaging the traumatised communities in this process.

  • Online safety for families

    Online safety for families

    In the 1990s there was no actual research concerning young people’s use of the internet, which meant that safety advice tended to be underpinned by assumptions and speculations. It was common to disseminate horrific stories about the internet, pornography, sexual offenders and vulnerable children. Not only was advice based on horrible but non-typical anecdotes, it also reveals a view of young people as naïve, reckless and in unlimited need of adult protection and supervision. As with any parenting activity, keeping your children safe online is a matter of calculating risk against possibilities. And in this decision-making the family needs information based on research rather than on prejudice.

  • De la concientización a una política pública en educación medial-digital

    De la concientización a una política pública en educación medial-digital

    El presente artículo busca presentar en forma somera algunos derroteros de la Comunicación/Educación en Chile (CECh), desde la década del setenta hasta fines del 2013. Tratándose de un breve texto resume solo algunas tendencias. Asume que la CECh debe entenderse en el contexto de la investigación en comunicación y los cambios más amplios a nivel socioeconómico, político, cultural y las transformaciones tecnológicas digitales de los últimos lustros. Ofrece una visión personal del interesante y valioso esfuerzo actual por construir una Política Pública en Educación Medial-Digital que impulsa el área de Novasur del Consejo Nacional de Chile. Es un momento crucial tanto para los actores institucionales como las personas, ya que se trata de un anhelo de larga data.

  • En torno a la comunicación en el seno de la vida cotidiana

    En torno a la comunicación en el seno de la vida cotidiana

    En la plenitud de su vida intelectual, Jean Paul Sartre emprendió una empresa que nadie, hasta ese momento (me refiero a los años 60 del siglo pasado) había intentado: comprender todo un hombre. Hablo de su libro El idiota de la familia, basado en la vida de Gustave Flaubert. La lección que nos dejó el filósofo francés fue preciosa: no valen las generalizaciones para referirse a un ser humano, no valen categorías que vendrían a iluminar el universo. Comprender todo un hombre significa reconocer la complejidad de la existencia, de toda existencia, de cada existencia.

  • A global perspective on children’s rights as media change

    A global perspective on children’s rights as media change

    Throughout the world, children are using media and communication technologies at ever younger ages. As technologies increasingly fill families’ “time, their houses, their children’s bedrooms and pockets” (Livingstone & Das, 2010:1), it seems that almost every experience – of play, learning, participation, work, and socialising - has an online dimension. Yet parents, teachers and policy makers do not always understand the associated risks or opportunities.

  • Technology rights of the world’s families

    Technology rights of the world’s families

    The family remains the basic societal unit of reproduction, consumption, asset-building and – in many parts of the world – production. Families bear the primary responsibility for the development, education and socialization of children. They provide material and non-material care and support to their members and are the backbone of intergenerational solidarity and social cohesion. The achievement of development goals depends, to a significant extent, on how families are empowered to fulfill their numerous functions.1

    Media Development 2014/1 Editorial

    It was in 1948, with the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, that the United Nations proclaimed the family as “the natural and fundamental unit of society entitled to protection by society and the State.” In the following decades, as the concept of the family became the subject of intense sociological scrutiny, the UN sought to draw attention to the debate by making 1994 the International Year of the Family (IYF).
