INHOPE is the global network combatting online Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). The Network consists of 47 hotlines in 43 countries that provide the public with a way to anonymously report illegal content online with a focus on CSAM. INHOPE is based in the Netherlands and our member Hotlines operate in all EU member states, Russia, South Africa, North & South America, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
