International and Internet Cases of Child Sexual Abuse Work in Progress

Kris Christmann, University of Huddersfield

ABSTRACT
There has, in recent years, been a dramatic increase in the awareness of, and concern over, child sexual abuse and the exploitation that involves an international dimension or the Internet. What literature there is in this area suggests that these cases constitute a small but significant problem, yet one that is expanding rapidly. This paper will present emerging issues from the first major UK study of Internet and international cases of child sexual abuse and exploitation. The study examines the extent and nature of known cases and is aimed at improving practice and policy in respect of these cases.
