Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children (CSEC) refers to a range of crimes and activities involving the sexual abuse, trafficking or exploitation of a child for the financial benefit of any person or in exchange for anything of value (including monetary and non-monetary benefits) given or received by any person.
Sexual Exploitation of Children and Child Sex Trafficking rates are higher than ever and happening in our communities – often going unnoticed or unidentified. The issue of Sexual Exploitation and Child Sex Trafficking is very complex and does not typically look the way movies or media make it appear. Understanding the intricacies of Sexual Exploitation and Child Sex Trafficking will assist in creating opportunities for prevention, identification and an appropriate response to all victims and their families.
