Abstract:     
Fear and anxiety about sexual predators who target children has stimulated legal initiatives in the US, EU and UK to encourage/require background screening for public and private sector job applicants and volunteers for positions that afford access to children. This Article examines the political, legal and logistical challenges that such initiatives have and are facing in three important legal regimes.
