A Report on the International Legal Framework and Current National Legislative and Enforcement Responses


Date of publication:  01 Jan 2001 Publisher:  CESC World Congress Yokohama Conference Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

This report has been prepared to review the legislative framework established to address child sexual exploitation. While it focuses largely on progress since Stockholm, it necessarily reflects on the importance of the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the specific provisions of the Convention relating to sexual exploitation of children. It looks into the wider legislative context that increases children’s vulnerability to sexual exploitation. Finally, it suggests recommended actions to be taken at the national and international levels to prevent and combat sexual exploitation of children.
