The Links between Prostitution and Sex Trafficking: A Briefing Handbook

Monica O'Connor and Grainne Healy, 2006, 40 pages

Prepared for the Joint Project Coordinated by the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) and the European Women’s Lobby (EWL), this handbook seeks to explore and elucidate the links between prostitution and trafficking.

It focuses on the importance of programmes and policies that are based on gender equality, the legal status of the sex industry, and the male demand for prostitution that promotes sex trafficking.
