Dangerous worlds? The problems of international and internet child sexual abuse

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

1 Citation (Scopus)

Abstract

Media reports suggest that cases of child sexual abuse involving an international dimension or the internet are extensive, but are being dealt with effectively. This article argues, to the contrary, that known cases are generally quite rare but tend to be serious and are being met with an inadequate policy and practice response.
