Staying safe online: EU programme leads the way

(RAPID)
An independent evaluation finds that the EU?s Safer Internet programme, which promote safer internet use, particularly for children, has been very effective in tackling illegal and harmful internet content, whilst respecting people?s freedom of expression. The Commission is taking into account the recommendations of these experts, in its implementation of the "Safer Internet plus" programme in 2007-2008. Meanwhile, the current programme is being used as a model by other regions of the world.
