Over the past two decades, there has been a surge in research about the relationship between children, young people and the media, in terms of the number of studies produced, topics addressed and methodologies used. Due to its multidisciplinary nature, this area has affirmed its position in the field of Communication Sciences and has marked the scientific agenda and inspired public debate about the impact of the media on the lives of children and young people and how they use and appropriate information and produce media content. The digital age has created new media and platforms and generated a greater diversity of content, with children and young people using different ways of access and distinct consumption and communication practices. This situation has generated new research challenges, raised new topics and offers new clues to study the media world and its action on the identities, cultures and rights of children and young people.
