Eradicating child exploitation: why a gender- and adolescent-specific lens is essential to accelerate progress

Briefing papers

Elizabeth Presler-Marshall and Nicola Jones

This policy note highlights that we must take a dual pronged approach in order to eradicate child exploitation. We need to employ a broad lens to identify and challenge child and adolescent exploitation in all its forms, while systematically disaggregating its underlying causes and effects by gender, age, disability and other indicators of social exclusion – so as to fast track social change for adolescent girls and boys.
