The EndOCSEA@Europe project is implemented by the Children’s Rights Division of the Council of Europe, in co-operation with the Cybercrime Office (C-PROC) in Bucharest, Romania.

Objectives

To ensure that the rights of children are protected through effective multi-national, interdisciplinary and cross-sectorial cooperation and child-friendly measures to prevent and combat child sexual exploitation and abuse facilitated by ICTs (OCSEA) at pan-European level.

The project includes 3 mutually reinforcing components, each aimed at:

  • setting up enabling environments for cross-sector, multidisciplinary collaboration at national and regional levels, through strengthening national governance structures and conducting situation analysis of OCSEA risks and responses in national and pan-European  contexts;
  • supporting legislative and procedural reforms, training and improved capacities of law enforcement officials, judiciary and prosecutors and promoting multi-disciplinary interagency cooperation for end-to-end support for victims;
  • addressing societal capabilities with emphasis on awareness-raising, education of  key targets groups and empowerment of children.

This project, which  is implemented in the framework  of the  Council of Europe Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021), will support the implementation of relevant international and European standards, in particular the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (Lanzarote Convention), and 8 of the capabilities identified in the WePROTECT Model National Response.
