Consultant - Developing Case Studies on Sexual Exploitation of Children in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Organisational Context

ECPAT International (EI) is a global network of organisations working together for the elimination of the sexual exploitation of children (SEC) in all its manifestations i.e. exploitation of children in prostitution, online child sexual exploitation, sale and trafficking of children for sexual purposes, sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism and some forms of child, early and forced marriage. The ECPAT Network currently consists of 109 members working at national and local levels in 96 countries.

ECPAT Members are very diverse: some are small grassroots advocacy organisations; some are large social welfare providers; some members have activities covering a wide range of SEC issues while others concentrate on only one aspect. ECPAT works to build collaboration among local civil society actors and the broader child rights community to form a global social movement for protection of children from sexual exploitation. ECPAT Members are involved in the implementation of various initiatives to protect children at local levels.

The ECPAT International Secretariat coordinates the global work of the organisation and is based in Bangkok, Thailand. The Secretariat designs and implements global and regional level programmes, and undertakes programming, campaigning, advocacy and research to facilitate a range of network initiatives.
