Updated: May 19, 2023

The Handbook on European law relating to the rights of the child - 2022 edition is a comprehensive guide that provides an overview of the legal framework governing the rights of children in Europe. The Handbook covers a broad range of topics, including child protection, education, health, and juvenile justice.

One of the areas that the Handbook highlights is the importance of data privacy for children. With the increasing use of digital technologies and social media, children are often exposed to risks related to their personal data, such as cyberbullying, online grooming, and identity theft. The Handbook emphasizes the need for strong legal safeguards to protect children’s privacy and ensure that their data is not misused or exploited. It also discusses the role of parents, educators, and policymakers in promoting digital literacy and responsible data practices that prioritize children’s rights and well-being.

Understanding the precedent set by the EU is a valuable resource for policymakers, practitioners, and anyone interested in understanding the legal framework that governs the rights of children. By providing a clear and accessible overview of the relevant laws and policies, the Handbook can help ensure that the rights and needs of children are prioritized and protected in various contexts.
