NIJ Audio: International Trends in Fighting Child Pornography

NIJ Conference Panel
June 2009

This panel brings together American and European practitioners using innovative approaches to thwart the sharing of child pornography online. The panel will highlight two efforts. The first, which NIJ's International Center is evaluating, is a European multilateral project that teams criminal investigators with international nongovernmental organizations and Internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to child pornography sites. The second effort seeks to prevent child pornographers from accessing credit card and other online payment systems. The panelists will include representatives from Norway, Sweden and the United States.
