When it comes to access to justice for child victims of online abuse, the global reach of the internet means online predators can virtually cross continents to reach children, falling foul of a complexity of different laws in different countries at once. Despite this newly globalised world, legal systems remain country-specific and differ widely in how they treat evidence, victim identification, and remedies for children. Child victims usually experience both online and offline abuse locally, and they need access to effective justice systems where they are, and they need access to courts which are capable of providing remedies in the context of these legal and practical complexities. Please have a look at my new blog post on this topic.
I would love to hear from others working on access to justice for children.
