“CSEC is a crime committed against the child. It is a crime not only against the sexual integrity of the child but also an assault to all rights of the child and treats the child as a commodity, it is a form of slavery, hence a crime against humanity. Commercial sexual exploitation of children confronts us in various forms. It includes child pornography, child marriages, child prostitution, trafficking and sexual exploitation of children in tourism and travel. This report explores only one form of CSEC in Turkey as a contribution to a global study conducted by ECPAT International and its members all over the world.”
