In 1995, the Scelles Foundation built an International Observatory  on  Sexual  Exploitation, and has since produced a World Report on Sexual Exploitation and offered monthly updates and technical analyses on this issue. Most of the documents are downloaded from the foundation's websites. It also organizes awards for outstanding youth advocates, ensuring their voices are a part of this crucial discussion. 



We collect and analyze information on human trafficking and sexual exploitation worldwide. Our observatory, CRIDES, provides background information on trafficking such as manuals for practitioners, legal texts, and policy analysis, in addition to conducting academic research and creating analytical articles. It hosts more than 500 books, 200 documentaries, 10,000 documents, 3,000 studies and reports, which are all available on our main webpage. Most of this documentation is in English.
