Chapter Summary

This chapter examines which conditions the use of alternative regulatory instruments (ARIs) will need to fulfil in order to be in compliance with the legal framework at the European level (European Union as well as Council of Europe). The use of ARIs to protect minors against harmful content can potentially raise a number of normative concerns at a national as well as supranational level stemming from constitutions, conventions, laws, jurisprudence and soft law instruments. The chapter concludes that there are no legal obstacles which a priori exclude the use of ARIs to protect minors against harmful content. However, there are various requirements which need to be taken into account in order for the ARIs in question to be in compliance with the European (EU and CoE) legal framework.

Keywords: alternative regulatoryinstruments (ARIs); European legal framework; minors
