Project Consultant

Project: A Global Initiative to Explore the Sexual Exploitation of Boys –

The Thailand Report

 

Organisational Background Information

ECPAT International is a global network of organisations working together for the elimination of the sexual exploitation of children (SEC) in all its manifestations i.e. exploitation of children in prostitution, online child sexual exploitation, sale and trafficking of children for sexual purposes, sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism and some forms of child, early and forced marriage. The ECPAT Network currently consists of 109 members working as independent organisations or coalitions at national and local levels in 96 countries.

 

The ECPAT International Secretariat coordinates the global work of the organisation and is based in Bangkok, Thailand. The Secretariat designs and implements global and regional level programmes, and undertakes programming, advocacy and research to facilitate a range of Network initiatives.

 

Project Background

There is a notable gap in global understanding of how sexual exploitation affects boys. “When countries do collect prevalence data on child sexual abuse or exploitation, it is usually limited to adolescent girls…prevalence data for boys is even more scarce.” Yet in the limited relevant research where boys are the focus, the evidence has suggested that in certain contexts, boys are just as heavily impacted by sexual exploitation as girls, and sometimes more. By no means detracting attention to continued research and support for girl victims of sexual exploitation, there is a clear need to advocate for more, and quality, evidence about the sexual exploitation of boys. In late 2018, ECPAT International began work on a global initiative to convene and coordinate a multi-stakeholder global initiative to explore the sexual exploitation of boys over the next three years. The initiative will consolidate and strengthen the evidence base of the sexual exploitation of boys globally, and to identify appropriate prevention, protection and recovery frameworks to inform legislative reforms, policy and programming.

 

Thailand is where ECPAT International began work in the 1990s. At that time, the country struggled with the issue of sexual exploitation in travel and tourism. Things have come a long way since that time, and while the problem certainly persists, Thailand has at times been at the forefront of actions to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation of children.

 

Acknowledging that boys are vastly underrepresented in research on sexual exploitation of children, the Thailand Institute of Justice (TIJ) is funding and partnering in work to explore this issue in the country as part of the Global Boys Initiative.

 

Project Description

The project funding will be used to pilot three activities, with the scope to scale these further. Evidence gathered will inform further promotion of the boys’ initiative through advocacy as well as inform effective and efficient support services for boy victims of sexual exploitation.

 

  1. Legislative Analysis: Analysis of the capacity of Thai national legislation to protect boys from child sexual abuse and exploitation to inform legal advocacy. In partnership with Thailand Institute of Justice, a legal expert based in Bangkok will lead the legislative analysis with monitoring and administrative support from the Project Consultant.

 

  1. Frontline Providers Survey: Develop and pilot a survey of 100 frontline workers providing sexual exploitation and GBV services to establish promising practices accessible to clients of all genders.

 

  1. Pilot study with children and youth of diverse SOGIE (LGBT): Undertake primary research in two locations (Bangkok and Chiang Mai) to explore the barriers encountered by 20 children and youth with diverse SOGIE accessing support services for sexual exploitation. An Expert Consultant will design the methodology and train peer interviewers. The Project Consultant will provide support in planning, organizing and monitoring the activity.

 

Position Objectives

The objective of the Project Consultant is to support the implementation of the three activities listed above. The Project Consultant will work closely with the Head of Research and Policy and Expert Consultant, and liaise with the Thailand Institute of Justice. They will also establish and manage relationships with relevant grassroots organisations in Bangkok and Chiang Mai.

 

  1. Support the administrative aspects of the project (including two consultation meetings in collaboration with TIJ and project reporting)
  2. Oversee design and contextualisation of the frontline providers survey, including identifying sample and training Thai administrators
  3. Support the Expert Consultant in aspects of the pilot study with children and youth of diverse SOGIE.
