Now that summer-time travel is at its busiest, UNICEF in the United States of America, alert us to the findings in their Global Study on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism, conducted in 2016, specifically, ‘’offenders include both domestic and international travellers of varying ages, races, and genders.’’
The study reminds us to be alert to the fact that children from all backgrounds and genders are especially vulnerable to sexual exploitation in the context of travel and/or tourism. Indigenous children, displaced children and children living in poverty were found to be especially at risk.
