Outlooks on Children and Media

Yearbook 2001

The aim of Yearbook 2001, Outlooks on Children and Media, is to give a broad outline of children and media in the world, focusing on media literacy in the manifold sense of the word. The concept of ‘media literacy’ has been given a great many definitions worldwide, something that is touched upon in the booklet. What we have in view here is knowledge of children and media, and efforts made to realise children’s rights in this respect, not least their right to influence and participate in the media. The yearbook contains a review of recent and current international trends in media literacy including research on children and media – that is, summarising examples of/references to research and practices, important conferences and declarations related to the area, and a selection of relevant organisations and web sites.
