ECPAT UK advocates for the rights of children overseas to be protected from sexual exploitation by UK citizens or residents, particularly in the travel and tourism industry. We draw on evidence from our research, case monitoring and findings from the ECPAT International network to campaign at the national and international level for policy, legislation and practice that enhances child protection measures and legislative frameworks, promotes international law enforcement cooperation, brings offenders to justice and secures the rights of victims to compensation and support.
