Abstract: Tourism is the biggest industry of the modern world. Along with the development of tourism, there are immoral practices including child prostitution in the so-called dark tourism domain. While there is an extensive literature on tourism impacts, the role of tourism in related to child prostitution has not been sufficiently explored. This article aims to contribute to the discussion on tourism and tourism governance in relation to the control and alleviating the threat of child prostitution. The study utilized key informant interviews and archival analysis as major methodologies. Result revealed that child prostitution is more than a standalone problem. A series of social problems, such as poverty, marginalization, the stage of lacking development, and the emerging trend of tourism have been identified as potential underlying causes for it. Any rectification has to be equipped with a holistic view.
