What we know after 30 years
This year, ECPAT International celebrates 30 years of preventing and responding to the sexual exploitation of children around the world, and a thirtieth birthday is a good moment to take stock of what we know and look to the future. Over the years, we have organised our work by focusing on five forms and contexts of child sexual exploitation. However, as the world has rapidly changed so too has the nature of these crimes.
The five summary papers launched today explore how the crimes have changed, what we’ve learned, and what this means for working to end the sexual exploitation of children, moving forward.
Read the five summary papers here:
- On the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism
- On the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Prostitution
- On the Sale and Trafficking of children for Sexual Purposes
- On Online Child Sexual Exploitation
- On Child, Early and Forced marriages as a form of, or pathway to Sexual Exploitation of Children
