The Irish Working Group on Illegal and Harmful Use of the Internet was established:
- to identify the nature and extent of the illegal and harmful use of the Internet, giving particular attention to the issue of child pornography.
- to examine the current approaches both domestically and internationally to addressing the problem
- for issues that can be addressed domestically, to identify the legal, technical and structural problems which arise and to make specific recommendations for their resolution
- for issues which that require resolution in an international context, to make recommendations which will inform policy in this regard.
This Working Group has issued its first (and only) report — Illegal and Harmful Use of the Internet: First Report of the Working Group.
