[20-Minute Lightning Session]

One way of contributing to End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children (goal 16.2) is to generate evidence on the nature and scope of the problem or aspects of it such as technology mediated sexual violence against children. ECPAT Mexico (http://ecpatmexico.org.mx) and ECPAT International (http://www.ecpat.org) both have respectively, conceptualised and conducted, two innovative studies. The first qualitative study one has been recently published, and looks at the Mexican connectivity context, ICT access conditions as well as how young people do connect and use the ICTs, to finally present data about the use and production of child abuse materials (child pornography) in the country. The other study, sponsored by UNICEF, collects, analyses and presents quantitative and qualitative data from law enforcement sources as well as web-based reporting mechanisms revealing trends with regards to the age categories of victims portrayed on online child abuse material specifically seeking to prove if toddlers and infants being increasingly portrayed on those images. The latter is still unpublished hence only preliminary results will be shared. Disseminating findings which provide new quantitive and qualitative evidence on how the information and communication technologies are used to sexually abuse and exploit children is meant to guide and to inform policy processes in the internet governance sphere.
