For over a year, Satyarthi has been demanding a legally binding United Nation convention against online child sexual abuse, like pornography and trafficking, which is backed by a new global task force and could provide victims with holistic support.
Offering him full cooperation, Pope appointed an officer from the Vatican to coordinate with Kailash Satyarthi's Children's Foundation to work in the direction, said a statement from Satyarthi's office.
Satyarthi is meeting stakeholders of different religion, political affinity and nationalities, seeking support towards an international law and a response mechanism against digital and online forms of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
Satyarthi has already written to all heads of states and UN General Secretary seeking the new convention.
"Given that online crimes transcend across borders, extraterritorial jurisdiction for the proposed law is absolutely essential," said Satyarthi.
