WS 28 Multistakeholder Solutions for Youth-Produced Sexual Content

A 13-year-old female in South Africa uploads a sexually explicit “selfie” to someone posing as an online “friend.” Within minutes her trust and privacy are violated as the image is published on websites worldwide. Sound outrageous? It is - and it happens every day.

How can the multistakeholder community come together to help solve this problem? How do we overcome IG challenges such as cross-border jurisdictions and varying degrees of privacy and freedom of expression protections? How do we educate and encourage responsible use of new technologies to avoid this type of behavior? And, if sensitive content is shared beyond the immediate parties, are there other mitigations? 

The Internet Watch Foundation will present the results of an in-depth research effort into this problem. A team of discussants will lead the audience through a multidisciplinary problems solving session. A draft outline of the session:

1) 15-minute overview of study - IWF
2) 60 minutes of free-flowing dialogue and discussion addressing the problem
3) 15 minutes of summary

Not only will we draw on the expertise and experience of the discussants, we anticipate a highly participatory session that engages the experience of audience members, potentially including youth, and takes advantage of the track record of best practices developed at the IGF in Istanbul for Child Online Protection.

At the end of the session, we anticipate an outcome document that includes a roadmap of solutions to explore in combating the increasingly common problem of self-produced sexual images and videos among children and youth.
