The impact of surveillance on today’s kids – tomorrow’s human rights activists

Every child is a potential extremist under school surveillance measures. Police are monitoring #FridaysForFuture climate protests. Kids’ data is massively being collected and used for profiling purposes. Climate activists are being put in preventive detention.

This panel will discuss examples from research, real life, court cases and regulation. We want to have a look at government surveillance measures impacting children and discuss their chilling effect on them. We want to find out how the defense of today’s child rights and freedoms is vital to our future fight against global mass surveillance.
