In the framework of the joint European Union and Council of Europe CyberEast project, the Cybercrime Programme Office of the Council of Europe (C-PROC) will host a new webinar, on an Introduction to Cyberviolence, on 18 June.
Registration is open until 17 June 2020, at 10:00 CET.
The panel, moderated by Giorgi Jokhadze, Project Manager of the CyberEast project, is composed of Betty Shave, Council of Europe expert (introducing the T-CY Mapping study on cyberviolence), Katarzyna Wolska-Wrona, Expert on gender-based violence, European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) (speaking on Cyber violence against women and girls) and Menno Ettema, Council of Europe, Programme Manager, Anti-Discrimination Department, No Hate Speech and Cooperation Unit (speaking on the Council of Europe’s work on preventing and combating hate speech and hate crime online).
The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the subject matter of cyberviolence from the perspective of relevant topics that are inherently connected to the use of information and communications technology.
Although not exhaustive in scope and coverage of respective forms of cyberviolence, this webinar will be an introduction to the series of dedicated webinars that will further focus on specific themes and areas discussed during the event.
The webinar is designed to encourage an interactive participation and to facilitate information sharing among participants, discussing relevant experiences, good practices, challenges and opportunities, and is deemed particularly useful for officials from policy makers responsible for cybercrime and cybersecurity, criminal justice authorities (judges, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies), staff from the national CSIRTs, as well as non-governmental organisations and researchers/academia having interest in the subject.
Background information, related resources and the agenda of the event are available on the dedicated webinar webpage, which will be regularly updated before and after the event.
The EU-funded CyberEast project, which falls under the EU4Digital initiative, aims at adopting legislative and policy frameworks compliant to the Budapest Convention on Cybercrime and related instruments, reinforcing the capacities of judicial and law enforcement authorities and interagency cooperation, and increasing efficient international cooperation and trust on criminal justice, cybercrime and electronic evidence, including between service providers and law enforcement.
