Adolescents’ rights that have been recognized remain highly nuanced, often unknown, and frequently not protective of adolescents’ interests. The problem that this poses for reform efforts is that more effective adolescents’ rights also will be highly nuanced, difficult to make broadly known, and as a result, a challenge to be as protective as hoped. For example, the suggested reforms emerging from each chapter highlight quite different ways to protect adolescents’ rights. Some emphasize the need to treat adolescents more like children in need of protection, others urge offering a level of protection more often associated with adults, still others opt for protecting adolescents by treating them like adolescents— neither as children nor as adults.

Jenkins et al. (2009) call this a “participatory culture,” where there are 1. relatively low barriers to artistic expression and civic engagement, 2. strong support for creating and sharing creations with others, 3. some type of informal mentorship whereby what is known by the most experienced is passed along to novice, 4. members who believe that their contributions matter, and 5. members who feel some degree of social connection with one another (Jenkins et al. 2009, pp. 5–6). Nonetheless, technologies, such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones allow youth subsumed under the participatory culture to perform many of their everyday tasks online: anything from studying and working to socializing with those within their networks and even to simply have fun (Davies and Eynon 2013).
