About the project

This project, sponsored by the European Commission, consists of three major seminars in London (Queen Mary, University of London), Lisbon (Centre of Judicial Studies) and Trier (Academy of European Law - ERA).

Each seminar has had a specific focus:
  • Seminar 1 (London, 11-12 November 2010): "Cybercrime: developing the legal framework in Europe – national experiences with regard to the implementation of cybercrime instruments";
  • Seminar 2 (Lisbon, 17-18 March 2011): "Fighting cybercrime and child pornography on the internet – cooperation with the internet industry";
  • Seminar 3 (Trier, 10-11 November 2011): "Fighting cybercrime: the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the internet industry to fight cybercrime".

Contents of the seminar

Building on the first two seminars in London and Lisbon, the third and last event of the series is intended as a platform to debate and assess effective cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the internet industry to prevent, detect and respond to crimes committed using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

During the seminar, the most recent European legal acts and complementary measures such as the Council of Europe Convention on Cybercrime (2001) and the two new proposals for directives to replace Council Framework Decision 2005/222/JHA on attacks against information systems and Council Framework Decision 2004/68/JHA on combating the sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, will be analysed.

After the introductory lectures by national, EU and Council of Europe experts, panels of experts from the public and private sectors (Ebay, Facebook, Microsoft, Symantec and Vodafone), will discuss the concrete implementation of these measures at domestic level and the differences in national legislative acts which impede the effective fight against cybercrime.
