STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES On Deterring Demand for Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children

Sponsor: International Justice Mission

Deterring demand of commercial sexual exploitation of minors through criminalising customers is of utmost significance for protection of children. Last year, in October 2019, IJM had conducted a National Consultation on Deterring Demand of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children, with National Experts from across the country. We collectively realised that the arrest of customers was not something unheard of and that may of the stalwarts who attended the National Consultation had in fact arrested and prosecuted customers of minor victims. What was simply missing was the sharing of this invaluable collective experience across the states with multiple stakeholders.
