The International Security Alliance (ISA) organizes the first digital dialogue session entitled "Sexual Exploitation of Children Online"

The ISA, whose Secretariat is headed by the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Interior (UAE MOI), organized the first digital dialogue session entitled "Sexual Exploitation of Children Online" via videoconference, with the participation of experts and specialists from the ISA country members including officers from the UAE MOI.

This session comes from the ISA’s keenness to preserve the security and safety of societies in light of the Covid-19 pandemic crisis, as part of series of digital dialogue sessions organized by the coalition periodically. During these dialogue sessions, the focus is on security challenges faced by police institutions during the Covid-19 pandemic, with the aim of finding solutions to counter, reduce and prevent the commission of crime.

It is worth noting that the ISA consists of nine countries, which are the Republic of Italy, the Kingdom of Spain, the Slovak Republic, the Kingdom of Bahrain, the Republic of Singapore, the Republic of Senegal, the Kingdom of Morocco and the two founding countries the United Arab Emirates and the French Republic.

The Ministry of Interior Child Protection Centre participated in the dialogue session by highlighting the negative effects of the Internet, which children use to communicate and the exploitation of child abuse material poses a real danger as children are vulnerable, especially considering the current conditions of the coronavirus pandemic.

Faced with this reality that transcends international borders, many organizations and countries have recently attempted to address this type of serious crime that is against public order and public morals, and requires international cooperation and combined efforts of all institutions of society to reach solutions to protect children and achieve their safety online through the development of a legal framework appropriate to protect privacy of the victim and perpetrator.
