Legal Challenges and Strategies for Combatting Sexual Violence against Children
Please join us for a talk by Corinne Dettmeijer, the Dutch National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children. A former public prosecutor, and a current judge at the district court of The Hague, Dettmeijer will discuss the evolution of the perspective on child pornography as a crime, and the legal framework that has been developed in response. She will analyze the current situation by discussing two major child pornography cases: Paroline v. United States, now before the U.S. Supreme Court, and Robert M., a case that shocked the Netherlands at the end of 2010.
