The CSISAC calls for expressions of interest from Civil Society participants to take part in the second consultation of the expert group on the review of the OECD Recommendation on the Protection of Children Online.
While the Internet can bring considerable benefits to children's education and development, it also exposes them to online risks such as access to inappropriate content, abusive interaction with others, exposure to aggressive marketing practices and privacy risks. The OECD has undertaken considerable work on the protection of children as users of the Internet. The CSISAC is taking part in the OECD work on children online contributing with a civil society perspective consistent with the Civil Society Principles adopted in the 2008 OECD Seoul Ministerial Meeting. You can learn more about the work of the OECD on this topic at the Protecting children online website.
The CSISAC is the voice of civil society at the OECD Committee on the Digital Economy Policy. We facilitate the exchange of information between the OECD and civil society participants, leading to better-informed and more widely accepted policy frameworks. The formal recognition of this Advisory Committee by the OECD was the result of an effort initiated in the 1990s decade to promote participation parity in the global policy-making. Today, the CSISAC is the main venue to channel the participation of civil society in the OECD work on the digital economy.
