Examining neglected elements in combatting sexual exploitation of children

ECPAT International has published its latest journal (ECPAT Journal Series No. 7), which examines neglected elements in combating the sexual exploitation of children. These include: understanding demand for the commercial sexual exploitation of children; engaging men and boys in the prevention of commercial child sexual exploitation; and addressing the physical and psychological consequences and recovery of child victims of commercial sexual exploitation. The Journal illustrates the importance of a comprehensive framework for tackling the muti-faceted complexities of commercial sexual exploitation of children. Greater attention and resources must be directed at both ends of the problem – to stop the perpetrators and to heal the life-long consequences of the child’s victimization.
