As you have learned in the previous lesson, OCSE is on the rise and there are various forms of OCSE of which children are exposed to. Child sex offenders exploit different behaviours of children as well as specific qualities of online use for their own sexual gain.
In Cambodia, a research on OCSE showed that approximately 1 in every 6 children have shared at least one OCSE related risk on the internet, which highlights the magnitude of the problem and the urgent need to address risk factors to OCSE for children online.
In this lesson:
- You will learn what puts children at such high risk of OCSE, and how they are targeted by child sex offenders online.
- You will learn what you can do to address these risks in order to prevent children from becoming victims of OCSE.
