Protection of children against sexual abuse – still too much to do

On 27 October the EESC launched an online database of best practices for the protection of children against sexual abuse.
The examples of best practices have been collected from across Europe and showcase the work of NGOs and government agencies which have set up hotlines or launched awareness campaigns for children in schools, on the internet or on TV and which can serve as a vital tool for combating child abuse.
This initiative ties in with the new EESC opinion on "Preventive measures for the protection of children against sexual abuse" drafted by Madi Sharma (Member of the Employers' Group) and adopted at the EESC October plenary session.
