>My name is Maria Afonso and I am currently a student at the University
>of Stockholm doing a Master's in Criminology. I have previously
>obtained a B.A. Honours in Sociology and a B.A. in Psychology from the
>University of Calgary in Canada (1991-1996).
>I am writing in regards to my thesis topic on child trafficking. I
>became interested in the subject as a result of my previous interest in
>the sexual exploitation of children. My interest was further peaked at
>a seminar given by ECPAT here in Stockholm in the fall.
>I am hoping to focus my paper on child trafficking from the perspective
>of the construction of a social problem. I plan on looking at how child
>trafficking has increased, how it has changed, the increased attention
>given to the phenomenon from the media, non-profit organizations, the
>UN, any charges that have been laid etc. My current problem is finding
>empirical data. Almost all of the information I have been able to find
>has been via the internet, ehich is unfortunately not always as reliable
>as one would hope.
>I would therefore greatly appreciate any help you could offer me in this
>area. Where I could look for more information, anyone I could speak to,
>or interview either in person or via email, that sort of thing. Any help
>would be wonderful.
>Thank you very much for your time.
