The WeProtect Global Alliance’s recent Global Threat Assessment 2021 highlighted how child sexual exploitation and abuse online has increased at an unprecedented level, both in scale and complexity.

The proliferation of child sexual exploitation and abuse online has fuelled debate on internet regulation in recent years. Current or planned regulation aims to provide standards for balancing user privacy and safety to enable a more consistent approach to tackling online harm.

Building on the Alliance’s Model National Response and Global Strategic Response frameworks, this webinar will provide an overview of key online safety legislative developments in several Alliance member nations, in relation to child sexual exploitation and abuse online.

This will inform more detailed discussions between Alliance members about regulation and the global response at our forthcoming Global Summit in June 2022 in Brussels and online.
