Sexual and physical abuse, forced labor, separation from family members – these are but a few of the forms taken by the widespread abuse of children. Three experienced reporters offer key tips for investigating such cases.

Hear Martha Mendoza, two-time Pulitzer-winning AP journalist, who revealed that 14,300 migrant children, forcibly separated from their parents at the U.S.- Mexico border, had been packed into crowded detention centers; from Suzanne Smith, a consulting editor at Australia’s Crikey INQ who reported on paedophiles in the Catholic Church in a series called “The Pathology of a predator”; and from Frauke Giebner, award-winning visuals project leader at Denmark’s Politiken, who helped expose pervasive sexual abuse of children in the Danish film industry.
