Chapter Summary

The drafting process of Article 34 of the Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) suggests that the States are leaning more to the question of the sexual exploitation than the question of the sexual abuse of children. After the CRC came into force, there emerged a trend to concretize the notions of sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography further through an additional treaty. This became reality with the adoption of the Optional Protocol to the CRC on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography. The CRC Committee holds three sessions every year to consider the reports of States Parties in regard to their implementation of the CRC at the national level. The chapter lists 10 issues which have become clearer from the CRC Committee after over a decade of deliberations.

Keywords: child pornography; child prostitution; CRC committee; optional protocol; sexual abuse; sexual exploitation
