This report commissioned by UNICEF: * describes what is known about the extent, nature and consequences of child sexual abuse and exploitation; * reviews the evidence on effective interventions and strategies to prevent and respond; * synthesises these findings within the overarching INSPIRE and RESPECT strategic approach for violence prevention to recommend specific actions to prevent and respond to child sexual abuse and exploitation.

A route to safety: using bus boarding data to identify roles for transport providers within contextual safeguarding systemsFirmin, Carlene Emma; Abbott, Matthew (Wiley, 2018-01-10)During adolescence, risk to young people’s safety shifts from familial to community contexts. Contextual safeguarding has emerged in response to this dynamic; by providing a conceptual framework through which to incorporate extra-familial contexts (and those who manage them) into traditionally family-focused child protection systems. This paper uses GiS mapping techniques to explore the extent to which bus boarding data could be used to: target protective interventions in public spaces; evidence routes where young people may be vulnerable; and build local area problem profiles. In doing so it provides foundational evidence for including transport providers in contextual safeguarding systems.
