ADULT SURVIVORS’ RECOLLECTIONS AND ACCOUNTS OF THEIR INVOLVEMENT IN CHILD SEX TOURISM BY WAY OF CHILD PROSTITUTION

Karen Spurrier, Nicky Assim Alpaslan

Abstract


Increasing tourism numbers in Third World countries affect their economies and certain aspects of their society positively; however, there are concomitant negative effects that expose the dark side of the tourism industry. One of these is the escalating commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), particularly child prostitution in the context of tourism, a phenomenon known as child sex tourism (CST). This paper reports on the recollections of the adult survivors of CSEC, who as children were exposed to CST through child prostitution (CP) and who formed part of a larger research project approached from a qualitative perspective.
