Thematic paper. The exploitation of children in prostitution is only one form taken by the commercial sexual exploitation of children. Terms in common use take specific meanings when viewed through the perspectives of different explanatory frameworks and the search for agreed definitions leads very rapidly into ideological controversies. This is complicated by rapid shifts in understandings, new meanings for (or revivals of) old terminology together with newly-coined expressions. Even though the title of this theme paper attempts to establish distance from terminological debates, there is still a need to begin by clarifying key terms, not leastchild andexploitation.
