Both national and international regulators have focused on criminalizing individuals engaging in child sex tourism (CST). It is, however, just as important to focus on the infrastructure making CST possible. In this article, an evaluation is made of what, if any, responsibility can be attributed to corporations organizing or facilitating CST. An evaluation of international and national regulation shows that progress has been made during recent years in establishing corporate liability for CST crimes. However, there are still significant loopholes in international and national regulation. Also, enforcement of existing regulation is lax.
