January 11, 2001


In this paper Liz Kelly notes some of the emerging trends in protecting children against sexual exploitation in Europe, focusing in particular on some of the more contentious and difficult challenges to our thinking on this issue. The paper outlines the most appropriate ways to protect children from exploitation of this kind, and highlights the vital connections between this problem and those of child sexual assault and violence against women more broadly.
