Conference sessions revolved around helping children exposed to violence and abuse, as well as protecting the rights of children involved in legal proceedings. Domestic and international experts spoke about systemic solutions for preventing crimes against children; they also discussed methods, projects and initiatives offering practical assistance to children-victims of crime and their families.
The seminar will take place on 29th and 30th of November in Madrid. In light of the recent adoption of the 2011 EU Directive aimed at combating sexual abuse and exploitation of children as well as child pornography, this event is intended as a platform to debate and assess the new EU legislation and to promote the effective investigation and prosecution of offences in this area of law.
The aim of the new EU instrument is to respond effectively to the challenges of new technologies that have made child pornography much more widely available.
