A Typology of Online Child Pornography Offending

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


Child pornography existed before the creation of the Internet. It is not possible to say whether the advent of the Internet has fuelled the demand for child pornography and expanded an existing market, or whether it simply satisfies in new ways a market that would have existed in any event. It is clear, though, that the Internet provides an environment for the proliferation of child pornography and the creation of an expanding market for its consumption.

This paper explores three important questions:
• What is online child pornography?
• Is there a typology of offending online?
• If so, what are the implications for law enforcement?
