GLOBAL STUDY ON SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN IN TRAVEL AND TOURISM 2016
Despite 20 years of efforts, the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism (SECTT) has expanded across the globe and out-paced every attempt to respond at the international and national level. The results of the first comprehensive global study on SECTT confirm that no region is untouched by this crime and no country is ‘immune’. In an increasingly interconnected world, more people are on the move and even the most remote parts of the planet are now within reach, thanks to cheaper travel and the spread of the Internet. As a result, the risks of child sexual exploitation are increasing. The Global Study is a two-year collaboration involving 67 global partners from the private sector, civil society, law enforcement agencies, UN and human rights entities. The report includes a Global Report, 9 Regional Reports, 15 Country Studies, 42 Expert Papers, a youth version and an animated version.
