Guy Degan: You’re watching UNICEF Television.
International experts on child rights along with government and NGO representatives had gathered in Florence, Italy to examine global issues on trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Hosted by UNICEF’s Innocenti Research Center for Child Rights, it’s an opportunity to share information on child trafficking and discuss recommendations.
A head of the Third World Congress against Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescence in Brazil in light of this year research into trafficking of children developed by the center confirms that insufficient data makes the global scale of child trafficking difficult to accurately assess. Child trafficking is also often viewed in connection with only sexual exploitation or prostitution. The centers researches add that children are also trafficked for criminal activities to conflict, exchange of deaths or for adoption. One of the central recommendations of UNICEF’s Innocenti Research Center is for countries to listen to the needs of trafficked children and adopt a specific child rights approach to human trafficking.
Marta Santos Pais: What we have seen in many countries is that by adopting an overall approach to protection of human trafficking we have felt to understand who were the children at greater risk, where they lived, who are the families that were affected by these, and how we could prevent the risk of being seduced and taken into trafficking roots.
Guy Degan: Highlighting the need to use clear definitions for trafficking and child exploitation, Nevena Vokovic Sahovic of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child wants that legal protection for trafficked children caught up in criminal activities is still insufficient in many countries.
Nevena Vukovic Sahovic: Quite often you see -- you hear the government representatives having attitude that “Okay, it’s normal for that group of people that the normal people or something -- ” this is what they do, this is how they live, so it’s kind of acceptance of almost offense-like attitude.
Guy Degan: Throughout the weeklong series of meetings, delegates in Florence will also address the importance of preventing sexual exploitation of children in tourism and crimes against children on the internet.
