The commercial sexual exploitation of children assumes many forms and has many faces. Children are enslaved by a chain of actors, all of whom profit in some way. The chain can be long, linking a child to an abuser sometimes thousands of miles away through intermediaries that include recruiters, transporters, brothel owners and pimps. Organized criminal networks and gangs thrive on this trade in children and, to lesser or greater degrees, so do many others: hotels clerks, taxi drivers, police officers, government officials, neighbors and relatives, including mothers and fathers. This report, a tribute to the courage of the many children who have been affected by this inhuman trade, presents the moving words of the children themselves, as well as the passionate and informed opinions of distinguished personalities and authorities.
