On 5 December 2012, Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, together with Eric Holder, US Attorney General, launched a Global Alliance against Child Sexual Abuse Online, with participation of Ministers and other high-level officials from 45 countries. This initiative aims to unite efforts around the world to more effectively combat online sexual crimes against children. The 45 participating countries will make political commitments to pursue a number of key policy targets and goals, notably: enhancing efforts to identify victims and ensuring that they receive the necessary assistance, support and protection; enhancing efforts to investigate cases of child sexual abuse online and to identify and prosecute offenders; increasing children's awareness of online risks; reducing the availability of child pornography online and the re-victimization of children.
