Extensive research on media and children show that the media can have both a positive and negative impact on their development. The term "protection of minors" in the context of media is concerned precisely with ensuring that harmful content in the media does not damage the physical and psychological development of children and minors. The aim of this publication is to contribute to a wider understanding of the concept of protection of minors from harmful content in audiovisual media services.

This publication was prepared in the framework of the Council of Europe and the European Union programme “Reinforcing Judicial Expertise on Freedom of Expression and the Media in South-East Europe (JUFREX)”, and in cooperation with media regulatory authorities from South-East Europe.
