This study was commissioned by the Centre for Child Law at the University of Pretoria and developed out of a concern that the 'moral panic' around 'child trafficking' in South Africa is used to discourage cross-border child migration and impinge on children's rights. In addition, there are concerns that state actors coming into contact with undocumented migrant children might be erroneously using child trafficking to justify measures and practices that violate the rights of children.
