ASCCSA is an annual conference organised by the Foundation. Dr. Anja Kovacs is speaking on the panel on ‘Navigating the digital space: Children’s Internet rights vs. safety from sexual abuse’.

ASCCSA 2017 will once again bring together field-experts to take on pressing aspects of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). This year, the conference aims to advance the discourse on CSA in India by focusing on four themes. Within each of these themes are unique risks and challenges experienced by both caregivers and help-seekers. The conference will engage with the themes independently as well as intersectionally, with a dual lens of prevention and response. The themes are as follows:

  • Recent developments and trends in CSA

  • Juveniles with problematic sexual behaviour

  • Child sexual abuse in the digital space

  • Intersections of vulnerable children, sexuality, and sexual abuse

Dr. Anja Kovacs is speaking on the session on ‘Navigating the digital space: Children’s Internet rights vs. safety from sexual abuse’, which will take place on 6 May, 16-17 hrs. Other speakers on the panel are:

  • Siddharth Pillai (Aarambh)
