Workshop in Tilburg on the analysis of national law and policies on sex work in relation to sexual exploitation and human trafficking


On 17 October 2017, the consortium will engage with external stakeholders to present and validate the findings on the research conducted on national law and policies on sex work in the framework of a workshop held in Tilburg.

The first part of the workshop will be dedicated to the presentation of the Work Packages 1 and 2. The WP1 represents a theoretical study on the demand for sexual services that can fuel sexual exploitation in the context of human trafficking. The WP2 is focused on the analysis of national law and policies on sex work in four states: The Netherlands, Sweden, Croatia, and Poland.


In the second part of the workshop, there will be three presentations concerning:

  1. the different approaches to regulate sex work and their influence on exploitation in the sex industry;
  2. the new technological possibilities for third parties involved in the sex industry and how these new technologies can assist in running the business both legally and illegally;
  3. the research paper on the impact of prostitution-specific criminal records on women seeking to exit prostitution.
