Published:  Tue 26 May 2015

Hosted between Monday 25 and Friday 29 May in Geneva, Switzerland, the WSIS Forum’s theme for 2015 is ‘Innovating Together: Enabling ICTs for Sustainable Development’. Co-organised by ITU, UNESCO, UNDP and UNCTAD, the WSIS Forum has proven to be an efficient mechanism for coordination of implementation, information exchange, creation of knowledge and sharing of best practices.

IWF Press and Public Affairs Manager, Kristof Claesen, and IWF Technical Projects Officer, Harriet Lester, join over 1,500 delegates from across the world to showcase the IWF’s work in fighting online child sexual abuse imagery globally. On the morning of Friday 29 May, Kristof joins other panellists for a discussion workshop titled ‘Children’s rights in the digital world: A multistakeholder approach’, hosted by ITU and UNICEF in ITU Room L.

Kristof Claesen, IWF Press and Public Affairs Manager, said: “We are honoured to be invited back to the WSIS Forum, as the IWF has been an active participant for a number of years now. The importance of a partnership approach to tackling online child sexual abuse imagery worldwide is a vision that both the IWF and WSIS share together.”
