The increase in criminal activities committed through the Internet require a more effective fight against this form of crime that would result in fewer risk behaviours of Internet users and children in particular as well as in the increased awareness of potential abuses.

This paper discusses the place and role of the European Union in preventing and combating child pornography. In addition, we have analyzed the most important decisions of the European Union in this field as well as their importance in detecting, preventing and combating this type of crime. It is also shown how the provisions of the Criminal Code of Serbia have been brought into line with international norms and standards in this field.
