    Target 16.2: End abuse, exploitation, trafficking and all forms of violence against and torture of children

    By Mechtild Maurer and Jana Schrempp, ECPAT Germany

    Despite 20 years of hard campaign work since the First World Congress on the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in 1996, child sexual exploitation in travel and tourism has increased across the globe, out-pacing attempts to stop it. It is still not sure how many children are victims of this hidden crime because most cases are not reported, and only a few of those reported are then prosecuted. But we do know that more children are victimized than ever before and that no country is immune.
