Alisdair Gillespie on restricting access to the Internet [cached]

Alisdair Gillespie on restricting access to the Internet

Alisdair Gillespie, Professor of Criminal Law and Justice at De Montfort University in Leicester UK, discusses his new paper in the International Journal of Law and Information Technology, Restricting Access to the Internet by Sex Offenders. Gillespie discusses whether access to the Internet is a human right, and if so, when that right can be curtailed. He establishes that access to the Internet could be a negative right, then turns to how Internet access can be restricted in the case of sex offenders. Gillespie talks about different ways to prevent these offenders from using the Internet for ill, including complete restriction as well as technological tools similar to parental control software, and the difficulties that arise when trying to implement any one of these schemes.

Professor Alisdair Gillespie and Mary MacLeod OBE have been appointed as independent Trustees bringing a wealth of experience and expertise to the IWF Board. The IWF is an independent self-regulatory body, funded by the EU and the wider online industry including internet service providers, mobile operators and manufacturers, content service providers, filtering companies, search providers, trade associations and the financial sector. IWF is the UK internet Hotline and works to minimise the availability of potentially criminal internet content, specifically, images of child sexual abuse hosted anywhere in the world and criminally obscene and incitement to racial hatred content hosted in the UK. Eve Salomon, IWF Chairsaid: "I am very pleased to welcome Alisdair and Mary to our Board.

Alisdair is Professor of Criminal Law and Justice at De Montfort University, Leicester. He has also been appointed a Guest Professor in the Department of Applied I.T. at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Alisdair's primary research concerns the law relating to child sexual exploitation, particularly when facilitated by information and communication technologies and he has written and spoken widely on the subject. He has undertaken policy advice and training for a number of law enforcement agencies and the Crown Prosecution Service. Alisdair is a member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety and has acted as a director and trustee for a number of local and regional charities. Mary is an independent family policy adviser and a leading voice on children and family welfare. She was the founding chief executive of the Family and Parenting Institute. Under her leadership the Institute became a key independent think tank, influencing government policy and the public debate on families and parenting. She has written widely about child and family welfare and is an Executive Board Member of the UK Council for Child Internet Safety, a Trustee of Gingerbread, chair of the DCSF advisory group on private fostering, and of the advisory Group of Safenetwork, a board member of the Child and Family Court Advisory Service and a non-executive director of the Video Standards Council and of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust. Mary was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Open University and an OBE for services to children and families in 2008. The IWF is governed by a Board of ten Trustees, consisting of an Independent Chair, six independent Trustees and three industry Trustees. Independent Trustees are chosen by an open selection procedure following advertisements in the national media. Industry Trustees are elected by the IWF Funding Council.
