During this webinar the experiences of the Korean National Police Agency (KNPA) in addressing Digital Sex Crime will be shared and information on UNDP Seoul Policy Centre for Global Knowledge Exchange's new programme will be provided, which will support selected UNDP Country Offices and their partners on strengthening police capacities for tackling the digital sex crimes. Studies show that digitalization and COVID-19 pandemic have escalated the severity and magnitude of gender-based violence in online spaces, hurting women, girls and boys around the world. Here, fighting and preventing the digital sex crime particularly requires concerted efforts to enhance national police capacities; and Korea’s experience provides an inspiring reference point.

This webinar and USPC’s programme offer are closely linked to the Strategic Plan and the Gender Equality Strategy, where gender-based violence including cyberviolence, has been identified as a cross-cutting priority. This initiative is also related to UNDP’s Digital Strategy, as well as global programmes on rule of law and gender which include work related to women’s access to justice and fight against SGBV.

Date/Time: Monday 23 May 2022, 20:00 Seoul / 07:00 New York.
