- Children, rights — Organized crime — Enforced prostitution — Rape and sexual violence
This chapter deals with international responses to the—predominantly sexual—exploitation of children. The worldwide phenomena of sale of children, child prostitution, and the abuse of children in pornographic performances are deeply interwoven. Accordingly, the first part of the chapter explains and specifies these different crimes in more detail. Subsequently, the chapter introduces the relevant instruments to fight these phenomena from an international point of view. All the relevant provisions and documents relating to the fight against sexual exploitation of children are discussed. Ways to improve the present international legal regime are highlighted at the end.
