About the webinar

An estimated 34 million children and youth are forcibly displaced and many more are on the move in search of economic and educational opportunities. Digital connectivity, digital data and emerging technologies are changing how displaced people inform themselves and access information and communicate, as well as how agencies conduct and manage their programming and measure impact.
 
However, increased connectivity among these populations has the potential to increase risk. The rapid introduction of technological innovations poses new ethical dilemmas and threats to the safety and wellbeing of displaced children as national legislations struggle to keep pace.
 
Save the Children’s Migration and Displacement Initiative has published the ‘Digital Safeguarding For Migrating And Displaced Children’ report to support improvements in Save the Children’s child safeguarding in situations where digital technologies ‘interface’ with migration and displacement contexts.
 
In this webinar, Linda Raftree (Lead Researcher) and Ilana Tyler-Rubinstein (Research Advisor in the MDI) will present the challenges for practitioners and policymakers identified from the report and next steps for the sector.
