The Digital Environment: Contributions and Challenges for the Children's Participation From a Perspective of Equity
Marta Sabariego Puig (University of Barcelona, Spain), Ana Belen Cano‐Hila (University of Barcelona, Spain), and Maria Jose Masanet Jorda (University of Barcelona, Spain)
DOI: 10.4018/979-8-3693-1614-6.ch014
Abstract
The digital environment has the potential to guarantee inclusion in child participation initiatives and decision‐making processes. This chapter looks at findings from a recent research project on child participation in the local area in Spain, and from a participatory diagnosis with children and adolescents from vulnerable neighbourhoods in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. Based on these findings, the authors explore the roles, uses, and specific areas of youth participation in the digital sphere. The results indicate that children and adolescents from vulnerable areas use social networks to communicate, entertain themselves, and share information, but not usually to participate, be socially active, or express active citizenship. The chapter reflects on the need for education to contribute to young people's digital literacy to increase the opportunities for participation and to create diverse, inclusive, and participatory spaces and strategies from a perspective of equity in the digital environment.

Equity is a particular body of law developed in the English Court of Chancery. It is not a synonym for ‘general fairness’ or ‘natural justice.’ It exists in domestic law, both in civil law and in common law systems, and in international law. The tradition of equity begins in antiquity with the writings of Aristotle, epieikeia, and with Roman law, aequitas. Later, in civil law systems, equity was integrated into the legal rules, while in common law systems, it became an independent body of law.
