Title: Data analysis to enhance global action to identify child victims of sexual abuse and exploitation


Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) represents a significant global challenge for law enforcement and others. In recent years, increased national and international cooperation between law enforcement and across sectors has advanced efforts to identify children depicted in CSAM, and prevent further revictimisation. 

However, gaps in resourcing and cooperation, and the absence of clear indicators to describe victimisation through CSAM may hamper efforts and leave too many children unidentified. These children deserve a digital future, and their online rights must be protected. 

To address this, ECPAT International and INTERPOL are cooperating on the European Commission-funded project ‘International Child Sexual Exploitation Database (ICSE) Connectivity and Awareness Raising Enhancements – I-CARE’. An important outcome of I-CARE is analysis of CSAM data internationally registered in the ICSE Database at INTERPOL as a first step towards production of a set of indicators on CSAM, or the Global Imperative Indicator (GII). 

This pre-event is designed to: 
1. Present the study, including emerging themes and findings so far
2. Engage key stakeholders in discussion about the research
3. Discuss next steps for advocacy surrounding the GII
