Pixie-Dust and Privacy: What's Happening to Children's Rights in England?
Children & Society, v22 n5 p393-399 Sep 2008
Increasingly, Information Technology is being used to identify, record and track children in England under the banners of child protection, reducing risk and improving outcomes.

However, placing so much faith in unproven technological solutions may inadvertently increase levels of risk to children.
