About the book
A new and significant study in this important series of publications on human rights. Sexual exploitation of children is unquestionably a breach of human rights and this invaluable book shows how education and mobilization are essential in helping to prevent the problem. We are shown among other things how more emphasis should be placed on sustained strategies to tackle the factors that may lead to child sexual exploitation. These factors include poverty, criminality and family breakdown and to eliminate them plans and programmes have to be organized at all levels and in all communities.
