Trafficking of Indonesian women and children is an increasingly recognized human rights violation. Although many articles have been written and research on related topics conducted, the information has yet to be consolidated or analyzed as a whole. The purpose of this report is to consolidate the information that already exists about trafficking in Indonesia into one comprehensive report and disseminate this information widely. It is anticipated that this report will be helpful for people working on counter trafficking in Indonesia, as well as people interested in trafficking worldwide.

The economic and social bases of prostitution in Southeast Asia The subject of prostitution raises issues relating to basic human rights, morality, employment and working conditions, gender discrimination, health threats and criminality. To help define the challenges and dilemmas confronting governments around the world, this book includes case studies from Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand prepared by highly-respected national and international researchers.

There is world-wide concern at the escalation in numbers of children in prostitution. In Asia more than a million children live each day in this modern form of slavery. Why is this medieval practice still flourishing? How wide-spread is it among tourists? What is being done to stop it? These are some of the questions considered in this new book by the coordinator of the international campaign to end the practice of child prostitution.

Sukina Hammond's father had a long history of violence against his wife. When he battered the little girl to death in 1988, the incident led to the belated realisation that domestic violence has its hidden victims — the children. This study arose from the need for child care practitioners to have a better understanding of the experience of families living with domestic violence. The research was carried out at NCH Action For Children Family Centres around Britain, using questionaires supported by in-depth interviews with mothers and their children.

Ron O'Grady has been International Coordinator of ECPAT since its formation in 1990. He is a fourth generation New Zealander who has worked for human rights in Asia for the past 25 years. This book is his personal reflection on the dynamic six-year history of ECPAT.

Every year a million children on our vulnerable planet are exploited for sexual and pornographic purposes, bartered or sold like slaves to meet the unflagging demand of those predators of the innocent, the paedophiles, playing an ever growing part in the vast world of sexual tourism. In fact, the data on this grim phenomenon show it spreading ever wider, with increasingly disquieting future prospects and an appalling escalation in blood-chilling episodes.

ECPAT International Young People's Action against Sexual Exploitation of Children offers this book to all committed to young people's participation. The book highlights the efforts of young people in addressing the issues that affect their lives. Insights from their experiences show us the forms of participation and the circumstances in which they are able to act and make a significant contribution to their own development as well as to the development of the community. Their experiences illustrate the process they need to undergo in order to participate.
