The 82nd Session of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was held at the United Nations Office at Geneva (Palais Wilson) from 9 to 27 September 2019. During the Session, CRC considered the fifth and sixth periodic reports submitted by the Republic of Korea. Open Net joined a coalition of NGOs in preparation for the 82nd Session and participated in drafting and submitting a report on child privacy. It has also participated in the CRC RoK Task Force meeting, CRC members meetings, and the RoK state report consideration sessions. Open Net was successful in raising awareness on the use of closed-circuit cameras inside schools and the infringement of students’ privacy. Open Net will continue to work towards the protection of privacy rights of the child through both domestic and international efforts.
