Policy paper

10 years earlier, the EUCPN had already focused on this topic once, during the Swedish presidency. At that time, Council Conclusions were adopted containing recommendations. In this policy paper, the EUCPN looks back at these recommendations to identify recommendations which are still valid and others who need an update. First, this paper discuss’ the prevention of victimisation of minors in general, after which the paper zooms in on the prevention efforts in the school environment and in cyberspace.
