January 30, 2023

The sexual abuse and exploitation of children is a horrific crime that requires a strong legislative response.

Our discussion paper, “The intersection between child protection and Australia’s legislative landscape”, examines the current legal response (as at January 2023) to child sexual exploitation and its implications on financial institutions’ ability to report suspicious activity.
