Abstract

On 17th November 2010, the international telecommunications union (ITU) launched a new Child Online Protection (COP) phase. Years after setting up these guidelines, it is important to develop a composite measure that provides an intuitive understanding of the gaps in child online protection system, creates cross national comparisons for advocacy and action. The enquiry proposes an objective assessment of where each country stands in child online protection across four critical priority areas. These areas include: nationally recognized child online protection strategy/ legislations; Collaboration, cooperation and partnerships; information sharing/reporting mechanism; and capacity building/institutional support. The four areas are reflected in the Child Online Protection Index (COPI) structure which comprises four sub-indexes. Each sub index is in turn measured by five categorical indicators. The indicators are derived or adapted from key institutions active in the information and communications technologies (ICT) sector and in child online safety issues.
