Tackling child exploitation online focus of event at UN Headquarters

28 September 2017

Governments must allocate more resources towards stamping out online child pornography and child sexual exploitation, issues that affect all countries worldwide.

That’s the opinion expressed by Camille Cooper of the US-based National Association to Protect Children, which trains wounded war veterans to work with law enforcement to combat these crimes.

Ms Cooper is at UN Headquarters this Thursday for a meeting on children and the slave trade in the digital age, which brings together representatives from more than 20 countries as well as civil society.

She spoke to Agnese Pastorino ahead of the event.
