Background Reading

Theme Papers

The research papers included in this section were prepared as background reading and to update understanding of some of the major themes associated with commercial sexual exploitation of children. The papers were sponsored by, but do not necessarily reflect the institutional views of individual Congress co-sponsors.

Briefing Notes

These notes explore briefly and concisely the many different issues involved in the commercial sexual exploitation of children. This is a complex issue, involving different kinds of abusers, regional and cultural variations, and many distinct but often linked causes and contributing factors. The effects on children are also multiple and include impacts on their health and development. Please distribute the notes freely; if you translate them into other languages for your use, please send copies for wider distribution to the Congress Communication Advisor: junekane@bluewin.ch. The notes were sponsored by ECPAT and the NGO Group for the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Regional Analyses

These situation analyses, not endorsed by the Congress co-sponsors, were prepared as contributions to regional meetings held in preparation for the Yokohama Congress.
