Today, the Internet has become an integral part of our lives, not just for adults, but for adolescents as well. Through the Internet device, they perform actions such as communication with others, learning, playing, information acquisition, purchasing, and registration, and engage in social activities. On the other hand, there are various risks on the Internet such as communication troubles, cyberbullying, browsing illegal/harmful information, encounters with criminals via the Internet, leakage of privacy and personal information, security risks, and so on. In view of this situation, the OECD recommended "The OECD Council Recommendation on the Protection of Children Online" and called on the international community to cooperate in the policy. This study examined the cooperative relationship between OECD recommendations and youth protection policies by international organizations from the perspective of international Internet youth protection. As a result, each international organization will cooperate with each other to promote international consultations, formulate guidelines, take advocacy activities through enlightenment education, and formulate treaties for the protection of youth. It was found that youth protection policies are being taken according to the roles played by international organizations. However, although the importance of evidence-based youth protection policies has been recognized, only a limited number of international organizations are actually conducting surveys to obtain evidence. In addition, the OECD Recommendation recommends an international comparison of policy impact assessments, but the current survey is limited to investigating youth Internet usage and awareness.
