The Child Dignity Alliance was established following a visionary World Congress “Child Dignity in the Digital World” in October 2017, hosted by the Centre for Child Protection at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, in partnership with the WeProtect Global Alliance and Il Telefono Azzurro. This pioneering congress was brought together global experts and decision-makers to discuss the risks and challenges of the digital age, its impact on the dignity of children and the action needed to tackle this global tragedy. It set a milestone in the international fight against child sexual exploitation and abuse (CSEA), exemplified by the Declaration of Rome, signed by His Holiness, Pope Francis 6th October 2017.
The Child Dignity Alliance, funded by the Human Dignity Foundation, has mobilised six different working groups to achieve the goals of the Declaration of Rome; its overarching goal being to generate global awareness of the pandemic of CSEA by building and spreading knowledge through global research and interfaith collaboration.
