Youth Protection meets a variety of new challenges due to new provider and supply structures, new technologies and services, as well as current developments in media equipment and the media use of minors. For a modern legal system, it is important to be prepared for these developments beforehand or to adequately respond to them. The study, which was conducted on behalf of the Swiss Federal Government in 2013 and 2014, provides an overview of the current systems that are in place for protecting minors in an international comparison based on fourteen selected countries. It identifies approaches of good regulatory practice ("Good Practice"), examines these on their transferability to Switzerland on basis of expert interviews and gives recommendations for a modern Swiss system to protect children against harmful media.
