The Down to Zero programme identified areas of learning, one being child empowerment. Within the programme, questions arose regarding (i) what are effective child empowerment strategies taking into account age and gender, and (ii) how to measure effective child empowerment strategies.

In order to answer the questions raised in the Down to Zero programme, the Steering Committee requested a literature review to assess to what extent this answers can be answered by research current available. Secondly, it serves to identify the gaps in the academic literature and identify areas for further research.

This literature review concentrates on the literature available on the topic of empowerment of children and young people who are affected by sexual exploitation. It focuses predominantly on exploring the concept of children and young people experience CSE. Finally, the review proposes empowerment strategies for child victims and children at risk.



Youth Voices for Change is an initiative of the Down To Zero Alliance that seeks to prevent the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents by amplifying the voices of young leaders for change in Latin America and Asia.
