Conference on the International Condemnation and Combat of the Grey Areas of Child Sexual Exploitation on the Internet -

The condemnation and combat of depictions of child sexual exploitation on the Internet is the objective of the Network against the Abuse and Sexual Exploitation of Children – No Grey Areas on the Internet.

At an international roundtable in October 2015 more than 30 organizations have already signed the "Communiqué - Condemnation of all forms of child sexual exploitation and abuse – No Grey Areas on the Internet", see here. The conference on 14 November 2016 will also address this topic and specifically increase the knowledge gained so far, expand the network, and further contribute to making combatting images in the Grey Area more concrete.
