Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation and other Exploitative Purposes
This report on the protection of children from commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking
is comprised of an introduction to the topic and then examines law and policy on child trafficking
in South Asia. The research initiative is particularly focused on South Asia. Included in the
preliminary findings is a case study from yet another region, Latin America and the Caribbean.
This case is included as an illustration of a coordinated effort to prevent and combat the sexual
exploitation of children for the purposes of sex tourism in the Dominican Republic. Other 'issues'
addressed within the report include: local governance, local action and child protection; the efficacy
of cross border interventions in the prevention of trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation; and,
migration, mobility and challenges to child protection.
