Discussions could, in particular, focus on:
- ‘Take-up’ of the human rights guidelines’
- Understanding what works and what does not work about the guidelines (e.g. precision of terms and lack of definitions in the guidelines, is there a need to dejargonise the guidelines?)
- Experiences and issues emanating from the surrounding (political) climate which affect the implementation of the guidelines (e.g. legislation)
- Understanding the roles and responsibilities of individual ISPs/games providers and of their respective regional bodies ISFE/EuroISPA
- Next steps for ‘take-up’ and further development of the guidelines and related activities (e.g. is awareness-raising and/or training necessary and, if so, in what form?)
