International Collaboration Continues After the CESE Summit

The 2020 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) Global Summit may be over, but the International Centre on Sexual Exploitation’s work is just getting started!

After the successful CESE Global Summit, which hosted over 22,000 attendees from over 110 countries, there is incredible momentum for the global movement to become more united and active than ever!

The new international division of NCOSE, called the International Centre on Sexual Exploitation (ICOSE), works to address the full spectrum of sexual exploitation and abuse issues around the world by assisting international leaders.

The International Centre’s goal is to keep the momentum from the CESE Global Summit going! We are more powerful and effective when we work together.

New Monthly Coalition Meetings with the International Centre on Sexual Exploitation

We are setting up monthly meetings to stay in touch, strategize, and share updates.

If you are an advocate who is located outside the United States and you would like to join these meetings, please email us at international@ncose.com!

Join the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation!

The Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation (CESE) has been growing for 10 years, and we need your voice and expertise!

CESE is a loose-knit coalition (meaning, you can join campaigns and projects or share updates when you want to, but there is no time commitment!) of multi-disciplinary NGOs and advocates collaborating and sharing information to end sexual abuse and exploitation.

It is filled with individuals and groups from diverse worldviews, backgrounds, and disciplines and it includes survivor leaders, direct service providers, policy advocates, lawyers, and more who are all coming together to better educate people on and advocate for a world free from sexual exploitation.
