Description

This training seminar aimed at improving capacities of law enforcement authorities in Eastern Europe in the detection, investigation and prosecution of sexual abuse of children on the Internet through enhanced law enforcement international co-operation, coordination and information sharing.

Summary

This event was a follow up of an on-line workshop (implemented between 21 February and 4 March 2011), where participants discussed such issues as: mutual legal assistance, grooming and commercial & non-commercial production of child abuse material.

The main target audience for this regional seminar were law enforcement investigators, experts on cybercrime, from Moldova, the Republic of Belarus, Romania, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, as well as participants from the host country. Each country was expected to delegate a maximum of three participants, preferably those who actively participated in the above mentioned online forum.

During the seminar the participants analysed current trends in sexual abuse of children, identified gaps in national legislation, shared best practices in detecting sites with child abuse material and identified child victims. It was intended that the seminar final report included recommendations for law enforcement bodies specializing in combating sexual abuse of children on the Internet in the OSCE participating States.
