FEATURED PUBLICATION

FALLING SHORT: DEMAND-SIDE SENTENCING FOR ONLINE SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN

This report highlights the need to hold demand-side offenders accountable for the severe harm they cause victims—vulnerable children at home and abroad—and to provide justice to survivors of online and in-person sex offences. While it examines cases and sentences involving UK offenders, it serves as an opportunity for all demand-side nations to review their sentencing schemes for livestreamed child sexual abuse offences.
