Information Note Trafficking And Sexual Exploitation Of Children

Children’s sensitivities, their need for special protection and support, the high risk of their exposure to trafficking repeatedly, the fact that one in every three victims of trafficking across the world is a child and the upward trend in child trafficking with the increase in migration as a result of serious human rights violations and increasing natural disasters due to climate change, require us to consider child trafficking as a subject that needs attention.

Unfortunately, the increasing efforts to prevent human trafficking in persons and protect the survivors/victims do not progress at the same pace as child trafficking. Therefore, the International Children’s Center developed this policy note about issues to be considered while planning their studies aimed at policy makers and practitioners.
