Enhance the understanding of the tech-facilitated grooming process and how it can lead to missing children for a Comprehensive European Strategy against Grooming and Missing

Being Online

can pose a risk to children. As with all spaces children inhabit, the digital environment can expose them to risks of sexual exploitation and abuse, including grooming.

Grooming

is an increasing factor in disappearances. Missing Children Europe's hotlines report concerns that grooming is a growing factor in disappearances, particularly in children who run away.

Little knowledge

Research on grooming in relation to missing is sparse.
There is a need for more research to understand the potential links between grooming and missing.

Understanding Grooming

CESAGRAM aims to enhance the understanding of the process of grooming, and more particularly how it is facilitated by technology and how it can lead to child sexual abuse and missing, in order to, based on this better understanding: (a) ensure that grooming for sexual abuse and which potentially leads to going missing is prevented insofar possible, as well as to (b) ensure that victims of grooming are identified and receive appropriate support before, during and after a disappearance.

Protecting Young People

The CESAGRAM project will mainly target young people 11-14 who are at risk of grooming or are victims of grooming themselves and are at risk of missing, carers and teachers, frontline professionals (social workers, NGOs, law enforcement) as well as policy makers. It will support the implementation of the existing legislation on child sexual abuse along with the European Commission’s Child Sexual Abuse Prevention Network (CSAPN) and the future European Centre against Child Sexual Abuse, as well as the relevant strategies developed by the European Commission (Child Rights Strategy, EU Child Sexual Abuse strategy, European Strategy for a Better Internet for Children).

The project will work on an EU level, but specifically in Belgium, Greece, Italy, and Lithuania.

X-FEED
