Tuesday 10th May - Transnational Child Abuse - Access to Justice and Support for Children. Who is responsible?
ChildHope will be facilitating a series of free seminars on principles and practices in child protection. The seminars are open to anyone who would like to deepen their understanding of work with vulnerable children. We hope that this will be a starting point for sharing the wealth of knowledge and skills held within agencies around the world on the practical application of child protection.
Seminar 1: Tuesday 10th May
The fourth seminar in the series will be delivered by Bharti Patel, CEO of ECPAT UK. ECPAT are a leading child rights organisation, campaigning and advocating for children everywhere to be protected from trafficking and transnational sexual exploitation of children. Bharti heads the UK national representative of ECPAT International, a global network of 80 children's rights organisations in 77 countries.
ECPAT UK has documented over 300 cases of British nationals, who have travelled to countries such as Cambodia, Kenya, India, the Philippines, Vietnam and others to sexually abuse children, often avoiding prosecution and conviction for their crimes against children. The discussion will cover the nature and extent of transnational child abuse, legal mechanisms to protect children as well as strategies to build strengthen the fight against transnational child abuse.
