Out of the shadows: Shining light on the response to child sexual abuse and exploitation
Out Of the Shadows Index: Shining light on the response to child sexual abuse and exploitation - a 60-country benchmarking index examines how countries are responding to the threat of sexual violence against children. It explores the environment in which the issue occurs and is addressed; the degree to which a country’s legal framework provide protections for children from sexual violence; whether government commitment and capacity is being deployed to equip institutions and personnel to respond appropriately; and the engagement of industry, civil society and media in efforts to tackle the problem. Visit the Out of the Shadow Index Exhibition booth to increase your knowledge and understanding of this Index
