About this talk

Globally, children are being sexually abused and exploited to satisfy the demand by sex offenders for new child sexual abuse materials in live-streaming, videos and photos. International Justice Mission has been combating this crime at the global epicenter, the Philippines. Come hear the results and recommendations from our groundbreaking study where we assembled a coalition of leading agencies on the frontlines of this hidden crime, including the U.S. Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (JTIP). Ten key recommendations emerged as a result of the study that, if adopted by the international community, could stop the rapid growth of the online sexual exploitation of children while equipping criminal justice system agencies and NGOs with promising practices in investigations, prosecutions, and survivor care.

Takeaway Ideas

They will gain an evidence-based, research understanding of the commercial online sexual exploitation of children happening where children in the developing world (i.e. Philippines) are trafficked online and sexually abused in live-streams for paying foreign sex offenders, including those in the U.S. That understanding in terms of who are the offenders and how they're committing this crime can inform government advocacy efforts in terms of new legislation and can inform advocacy with the private sector, in particular demanding that social media companies and money transfer agencies detect and report this crime on their platforms. This is a growing global crime that requires a global response--the audience will learn about IJM's proven model of combating sex trafficking and OSEC through a strengthened justice system response, leading to the rescue and restoration of victims and the arrest and prosecution of sex offenders. Leaders can connect with IJM through our HQ in the U.S., team in the Philippines or in dozens of other countries to explore collaboration.
