Abstract

The Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography provide a sound normative foundation for children's protection from sexual abuse and exploitation and for the adoption of legislative, policy and other measures to prevent and address these child rights violations. With the commemoration in 2010 of the 20th anniversary of the entry into force of the Convention and the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the Protocol, there is a strategic opportunity to promote universal ratification of these standards and to strengthen concerted efforts for their effective implementation. With this aim, a UN campaign has been launched to achieve universal ratification of the Protocol by 2012, to ensure the safeguard of children's protection from sexual abuse and exploitation as a legal imperative and a global priority, to prevent loopholes in child protection systems and to fight impunity within and across borders.
