On 21 September 2021, the Committee of the Parties to the Council of Europe Convention on the protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse (Lanzarote Committee) will open its 33rd plenary meeting exactly on the same day it held its first meeting 10 years earlier (21 September 2011).
During this meeting, the Committee will pursue examination of its draft implementation report on “The protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse facilitated by information and communication technologies (ICTs): addressing the challenges raised by child self-generated sexual images and/or videos”. It will in particular discuss the revised versions of the following chapters of the forthcoming report:
- Chapter I – “Legal Frameworks”;
- Chapter II – “Jurisdiction rules”;
- Chapter III – “Investigation and prosecution”.
The Lanzarote Committee will also exchange views on the recommendations of the independent experts’ report “Respecting human rights and the rule of law when using automated technology to detect online child sexual exploitation and abuse”.
