A Comparative Study of Child Trafficking Causes between China and Uganda

Susanne Nambatya, Qi Gubo


Child trafficking has been associated with various negative protection outcomes for children as well as causing huge social and economic burdens for countries. With thousands of children being exploited and abused at varying levels in all countries of the world, child protection lacks extensive information coverage. Government's are often challenged to gather vast information on the exploitation and abuse of children and yet globally, they are urged to implement more sounding intervention child protection programs. Although a number of intervention strategies are in place to combat child trafficking and to improve on the protection of children, these interventions have not been widely adopted by countries, making child trafficking a growing concern. The causes of the phenomenon in China and Uganda are discussed in this review paper, along with an exploration of possible common causes of the phenomenon out of a complex background, for a successful global campaign against the problem. The study on child trafficking is an important issue because it cuts across a range of development dimensions and therefore, it has relevance for practitioners throughout the development community. It was  meaningful for the researchers to explore this phenomenon because given that children are the future of tomorrow’s society, the problem of trafficking them cannot be taken lightly because it is the quality of life that is at risk.

Key words: Children, Child Trafficking, China, Uganda
