HOTLINES

INHOPE is the International Association of Internet Hotlines. It is an active and collaborative network of 45 hotlines in 40 countries worldwide, dealing with illegal content online and committed to stamping out child sexual abuse from the internet.

Within the structure of European Safer Internet Centres, INHOPE Hotlines offer the public a way of anonymously reporting internet material, including child sexual abuse material (CSAM), they suspect to be illegal. The Hotline will ensure that the matter is investigated and if found to be illegal the information will be passed to the relevant Law Enforcement Agency and in many cases the internet service provider (ISP) hosting the content.
 
On this page, you'll find a selection of articles corresponding to the work of Hotlines.
