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

by International Children's Centre in 2015

Sexual exploitation of children is one of the most heinous forms of child rights violations in in the world including in Turkey. While, in Turkey, national and local reports and studies mostly focus on sexual abuse of children, findings related to commercial sexual exploitation of children are extremely limited. There is almost no publication on this issue that contains evidence-based information with the exception of few recent doctoral dissertations, reports by civil society organisations submitted to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child under the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
