The Prospect of An International Sex Offender Registry:Why An International System Modeled After United States Sex Offender Laws Is Not An Effective Solution To Stop Child Sexual Abuse
KARNE NEWBURN

 

ABSTRACT

“A U.S. Congressman introduced legislation to create an International Sex Offender Registry based on the U.S. domestic Megan’s  Law. The introduction of an international sex offender registry should not independently originate from the United States or be based upon the flawed United States sex offender system. Instead, if the international community deems it necessary to have an international sex offender registry, it should be a global effort modeled after work in the European Union that embraces human rights to create a system that combines safety with privacy, rehabilitation and social reintegration.”
