Barriers to access to justice for child victims
The Bill of Rights initiative is focusing on child survivors’ experiences within the judicial system and recovery and reintegration programmes. One of the project’s key aims is to develop a bill of rights of child victims of sexual exploitation, which would bring together the voices of survivors, with existing rights under international law, into one child-friendly document. We want children over the world to know that it is their right to be free from violence, and to ensure that they know how to access support and justice.
ECPAT International initiated a platform for survivors around the world to speak out, collect their voices and opinions, and take initial steps towards a survivor-led movement to combat the scourge of sexual exploitation of children.
