Global Study on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism: Europe

by ECPAT International in 2016

This regional report has been prepared as a contribution to the Global Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism conducted by ECPAT International in collaboration with numerous partners. The sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism (SECTT) is an intolerable and pressing issue that came into public debate in the early 1990s, when evidence 
that European nationals were sexually abusing and exploiting children in developing countries came to light.

Almost 20 years after the First World Congress against Sexual Exploitation of Children, Europe is still both a sending and receiving region for travelling child sex offenders in spite of abundant commitments and efforts.
