The protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse facilitated by information and communication technologies (ICTs)
The 2nd monitoring round of the implementation of the Lanzarote Convention focuses on the protection of children against sexual exploitation and sexual abuse facilitated by information and communication technologies (ICTs), with a focus on the challenges raised by child self-generated sexual images and/or videos (CSGSIV).
