END CHILD PROSTITUTION, CHILD PORNOGRAPHY AND THE TRAFFICKING OF CHILDREN FOR SEXUAL PURPOSES (ECPAT)

ECPAT International is a global network of children's rights organizations in over 70 countries.

ECPAT in Eastern Europe - the violent nature of criminal networks controlling prostitution and trafficking has made the work of ECPAT groups extremely difficult and dangerous. Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) have witnessed the emergence of commercial sexual exploitation of children following the collapse of the Soviet Union and its consequences on their economies. It appears that much of the new child pornography circulating on the Internet comes from Eastern Europe, predominantly Russia.

ECPAT UK is a leading children’s rights organization campaigning against the commercial sexual exploitation of children in the UK and international areas. In particular, they focus on the protection of trafficked children and children exploited in tourism and the prevention of such crimes.
