Our areas of focus are: data protection, design of service, children’s rights, and child protection. Our policy is informed by research and our deep engagement with children and young people.
5Rights has achieved significant impact over the last couple of years: making a substantial contribution to the successful introduction of the Age Appropriate Design Code in the UK; undertaking to write a General Comment on the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child which will set out how children’s rights apply in the digital world; realising the creation of an international (IEEE) standard of age appropriate published terms for online services and products; as well as significant advocacy and political engagement in the UK, US and Global South.
