The Demanding Justice Project is a research and advocacy initiative designed to promote demand deterrence through increased attention and advocacy on demand enforcement. The research report documents the outcomes of federal and state arrests, charges and prosecutions of buyers of sex acts with children. The findings of this research will inform advocacy efforts to strengthen anti-demand legislation and enforcement.
Reports and Resources
The Demanding Justice Report captures information on the features of demand for sex acts with children, and criminal justice enforcement outcomes of the cases that are pursued as commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), while exploring the challenges and successes of implementing anti-demand enforcement methods.
The Demanding Justice Project Benchmark Assessment Report documents criminal actions brought against buyers of sex acts with children and the outcomes of federal and state arrests, charges and prosecutions of these buyers from 2008 to present. The research goal is to identify changes or trends, as well as forecast change stemming from recent case law holding buyers accountable under the federal sex trafficking law.
