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

Each seminar will have 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) "Cooperation of law enforcement agencies and the internet industry: the role of Interpol, Europol and the G8 24/7 Network".
Contents of the seminar
Building up on the first seminar held in London in November 2010, this second event of the series is intended as a platform to debate and assess all legal measures to prevent and combat the production, processing, possession and distribution of child pornography material on the internet
and to promote the effective investigation and prosecution of offences in this area of law.

EU Member States must take the necessary measures to encourage internet users to inform law enforcement authorities, either directly or indirectly, of suspected distribution of child pornography material on the internet. The next step is the cooperation with the internet industry, which is key for judges, prosecutors and law enforcement authorities in preventing, detecting and responding to crimes committed using Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

During this seminar the most recent European legal acts and complementary measures such as the 2007 Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (CETS No. 201) and the current EU proposal for a Directive on combating the sexual abuse, sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, repealing Framework Decision 2004/68/JHA, will be debated.

After the introductory lectures by national, EU and Council of Europe experts, panels will discuss the concrete implementation of these measures at domestic level and the differences in national legislative acts which impede the efficient fight against child pornography on the internet.

Conference venue:
Centro de Estudos Judiciários, Largo do Limoeiro, Lisbon
