This workshop is dedicated to childhood and adolescence during and after the COVID pandemic from a specifically ethical perspective. Thus, it addresses questions not only of how the pandemic has changed childhood and adolescence and what consequences can be expected for children and adolescents, but also: what are the ethical and philosophical issues involved; what are the rights of children and adolescents in the face of the pandemic and have they been adequately addressed; understanding how to achieve a good childhood during and after the pandemic (also to be prepared for the next pandemic); how to address the losses of education and social opportunities that children and young people have suffered as a result of the pandemic and what practices and policies can be adopted to prevent wider social gaps and inequalities from arising; how should children and young people be talked about and how should they themselves be involved so that their experiences can also be heard socially, in the media and politically.
