On 29 September 2020, the CONNEXIONs project attended CoU FCT workshop on human and societal aspects of the pandemic and beyond. The workshop focused on three areas: Child Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, and Infodemics.
The strategies pursued today, which aim to tackle crime effectively at EU level, and key initiatives (e.g., ensuring existing legislation and identifying legislative gaps) were presented and discussed. Particular emphasis was also placed on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on individuals and societies regarding the trend and evolution of criminal activities.
Overall, the workshop paved the way for fruitful discussions on key societal issues, focusing also on areas that have been explored to a limited extent so far (e.g., how artificial intelligence can assist towards the fight against domestic violence).
