ISPCAN, International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect

The International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect (ISPCAN) organised the ISPCAN Denver Thinking Space 2013 to focus on the neglected issue of preventing child sexual abuse and the commercial sexual exploitation of children through work with men and boys.

This report is based on an international survey, undertaken with the support of the Public Health Agency of Canada, presentations and critical thinking on current research, policy and practice that took place at the Denver Thinking Space event in March 2013, and subsequent feedback and contributions from the wider professional network. The resulting findings and recommendations are summarised here in order to inform the development of future global policy, strategy, decisions on resource allocation, practice and research to protect all children from child sexual abuse and exploitation.

This executive summary is designed primarily for politicians, government officials, those responsible for developing international, national and local policy and strategy, funders and advocates who are interested in finding solutions to the scourge of child sexual abuse and exploitation through focusing on preventive work with men and boys.
