Child Protection Online in the New MiLE -  The Grave New Threats, Challenges & Possible Solutions for Africa and The World.

The seismic change to the global internet has given birth of a new Internet that raises concerns on new critical issues in relation to child protection online with many new challenges and questions in this space that need addressing such as::

1-Technical issues: will traditional keywords filtering on child sexual abuse materials be sufficient in the new internet and the new range of languages of the new Multilingual Internet. If not, what needs to be developed

2-Will current blocking lists compiled by local and international law enforcements/ISPs be sufficient to tackle the challenges of more than a hundred IDN gTLDs? If not, what needs to be updated?  

3- How can local communities’ stakeholders be turned motivated & proactive in safe guarding their local internet and its content for a safe online experience for children?

4- How can the functionalities of reporting hotlines on child sexual abuse materials be updated to reflect the newer needs and challenges of  the new internet (both in terms of report collection and their analysis.

5- The new Internet will create new virtual markets and locations, new audience, but will also create new potential child victims as new avenues for interacting with children emerge - How can stakeholders prepare to mitigate these new challenges that will increase the possibilities of local child sex offenders on the new Internet reaching out to children who can speak and understand their local language. How can jurisdictional law enforcements be improved?

6-  How to turn unsuspecting unaware local stakeholders from becoming prospective victims to empowered ready and enabled stakeholders in the new Multilingual Internet?

7-  Key points to discuss , debate , share best practice experiences and conclude with a recommendations on moving forward on how to safe guard children online in the new Multilingual Internet.
