How should I report on the subject and act?
Promote a shared responsibility and a cultural change
- Making the problem more visible as a crime, prevent people from viewing it (or ignoring it) as if it were normal or acceptable; and stressing its illegal nature. Informing people that children and adolescents are victims.
- Analyzing commercial sexual exploitation as a social, cultural, economic and legal problem, and not just as sensationalist news.
- Diversifying sources of information on the problem. Look beyond the judicial sources to find more balanced information and support from other institutions such as government and non-government organizations, national coalitions, foundations, universities and specialists.
- Remain vigilant regarding to compliance of the national and international commitments to protect children and adolescents from commercial sexual exploitation
