German government adopted in September 2011 a new ‘Plan of Action for the Protection of Children and Teenagers from Sexual Violence and Exploitation’. It follows up the Plan of Action from 2003 and takes into account findings and recommendations outlined by the Round Table on the Sexual Abuse of Children and the World Congress in Rio. On the basis of these findings it brings all specific measures together under the roof of one overall strategy.
Its goal is to improve the protection of boys and girls from sexual violence und exploitation. It focuses on the following core areas:
- Communication Networks
- Trafficking in Children for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation
- Sexual Exploitation from Travelling Sexual Offenders
- Research and Knowledge
- International Cooperation
