Disrupting Harm: Conversations with Young Survivors about Online Child Sexual Exploitation and Abuse collects insights and key messages from thirty-three conversations held with female and male young people who had been subjected to online child sexual exploitation and abuse in Kenya, South Africa, Namibia, Malaysia and Cambodia.
The conversations were conducte by ECPAT International in the framework of the Disrupting Harm project. In early 2019, the End Violence Partnership invested $7 million to develop Disrupting Harm, a holistic and innovative research project that aims to better understand how digital technology facilitates the sexual exploitation and abuse of children.
The Partnership brought together and funded three global organisations – ECPAT International, INTERPOL and the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti – to undertake new research in 13 countries across Eastern and Southern Africa and Southeast Asia.
