Discussions, definitions and debate - Definitions and conceptual clarity
Subgroup Against the Exploitation of Children, UN NGO Group for the Convention on the Rights of the Child. (2005). Semantics or Substance? Towards a Shared Understanding of Terminology Referring to the Sexual Abuse and Exploitation of Children.  119 p. This publication aims to "highlight the confusion around" terms used in discussion of child abuse and exploitation. The authors argue that “…analysis becomes almost impossible if different countries utilise different definitions for the same terms. Legislation can reflect large loopholes and protection gaps, while responses can suffer from a misunderstanding about prevalence, practice and perception.” The 14 terms discussed in this publication were selected by the subgroup as the "most commonly used and often misunderstood". The confusion surrounding these terms is believed by the authors "to be indicative of a much wider problem".
