In the Netherlands, Defence for Children Netherlands is part of two international
networks: Defence for Children International and ECPAT International. Defence for Children Netherlands promotes the rights of the child in the Netherlands and worldwide, by providing information on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, investigating violations of these rights and protecting the collective and individual interests of children. Through our Children’s Rights Helpdesk, we provide legal support when children’s rights are (threatened to) be violated and we bring violations to the attention of the public and policymakers.
ECPAT Netherlands was established in 1995 as a coalition of NGOs and in 2003 merged into one organisation with the Dutch section of Defence for Children International. The organization conducts research into the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children, trains professionals and raises awareness through campaigns, e.g. calling upon travellers and tourists to report suspicions of sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism at the Don’t Look Away – platform.
