Children's Journey into the World of Online Sexual Exploitation

The research on online/commercial sexual exploitation of children (OSEC/CSEC) was implemented by the Psychosocial Support and Children's Rights Resource Center and commissioned by ChildFund. Data gathering was conducted in Cebu with participants who have engaged in OSEC/CSEC when they were 18 or below. Qualitative research methods were used, specifically the phenomenological and case study approaches, as well as document studies on the primary sources on CSEC in the Philippines and available national child protection mechanisms.
