The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy, Joe Cannataci, is examining the privacy rights of children and how this right interacts with the interests of business, governments, parents/guardians, and others. An important part of the work, given the international scope of the mandate is understanding the various views from around the world, and a particular interest is the work and experiences of Data Protection Authorities.
A key question is how the right to privacy affects the evolving capacity of the child for autonomy, and what privacy-related factors enhance or constrain this development.
