Policy Paper Proposal for Ending Child Sexual Abuse

The Council of Europe launched a campaign in 2010 to stop sexual violence against children in Europe linked to the Council of Europe Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse (The Lanzarote Convention).

The Council of Europe campaign uses available data that suggest that about 1 in 5 children in Europe are victims of some form of sexual violence. Therefore, the campaign is named as One in Five Campaign. It is estimated that in 70% to 85% of cases, the abuser is somebody the child knows and trusts. Child sexual violence can take many forms: sexual abuse within the family circle, child pornography and prostitution, corruption, solicitation via Internet and sexual assault by peers.

The campaign is run by International Children’s Center (ICC) in the scope of “Protection of Children against Sexual Abuse and Exploitation Project” since June 2013 in Turkey.

Within this frame, two consultancy meeting were held to develop policy paper framework by sharing knowledge, experience and necessities of participated NGOs and state agencies.  32 participants from 21 organisation attended the meetings were held on 6 June 2014 and 14 June 2014.

This policy paper will be used in advocacy and briefing activities to inform individuals and organisations including the Great National Assembly of Turkey.
