Overview Edit

Launched in December 2012, on the basis of a joint initiative by Commissioner Malmström and Attorney General Holder following dialogue in the EU-US Working Group on Cybersecurity and Cybercrime, the Global Alliance is a political initiative under which 53 countries have voluntarily undertaken a number of commitments to strengthen their national framework in order to fight child sexual abuse online, identify, protect and support victims, reduce the availability of child pornography, prosecute offenders and raise awareness.

The European Commission served as the Secretariat of the Global Alliance for the first two years, and published a report in February 2014 on the commitments made by participating countries and information for policy makers and the general public on trends and threats in this field. The Chair and Secretariat role was handed over to the United States in 2014.
