“… this book must surely be the most comprehensive study ever published on the issue of the internet and child sexual abuse… [It] offers an excellent overview of policies and programs… A very helpful addition to the child welfare literature.” • Social Development Issues
Child pornography and the sexual abuse of children through misuse of the media and the Internet are complex yet closely related issues. Not only do they necessitate complex solutions, they also demand a social response from all sectors of society. This volume records the response of these various sectors and shows how individuals and organizations can cooperate effectively. It describes the major work being carried out in some African countries, in Albania, Brazil, Guatemala, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka, and shows the efforts being made to share information and build networks. A reference section provides the site locations or organizations that have made significant advances in protecting children online. In addition, this book offers an action plan to encourage cooperation with others in the same fields in a coherent and coordinated manner.
Carlos A. Arnaldo is the former Chief, Section for Communication Policies and Research, UNESCO, Paris
