Examines the process of discovery and recognition of child-prostitution as a social problem in Taiwan and the divergent ways by which people with different responsibilities and power have responded to it. This work seeks to illuminate the interaction between the practice of child-prostitution and exercise of relevant socio-legal mesures. Past efforts have contributed to administrative, legislative, and social changes - state policies on prostitution control and the development of welfare state mechanisms for child protection have also moved against the practice of child-prostitution. However, this work aims to show that, in order to manage the problem appropriately, new efforts have to be made to reformulate policy and practice.
