The Optional Protocol on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography
Optional protocols complement and add to existing treaties. They are ‘optional’ because the obligations may be more demanding than those in the original convention, so States must independently choose whether or not to be bound by them. Optional protocols are treaties in their own right, and are open to signature, accession, or ratification by States that are party to the main treaty.
