New Interactive Map of Global Sex Work Laws

Global Network of Sex Work Projects published an interactive map that provides information on laws which criminalise the sale of sexual services, the purchase of sexual services and the facilitation, management or organisation of sex work.

Global Network of Sex Work Projects published an interactive map that provides information on laws which criminalise the sale of sexual services, the purchase of sexual services and the facilitation, management or organisation of sex work.

The information in the map reflects legislation (as of 31 December 2018) that exists in relation to sex work, rather than how laws are enforced or the impact they have on sex workers. The map does not include all countries where sex work legislation has been conflated with trafficking legislation, given the complexity of the legislation, but the map highlights some examples on specific country pages.

More information and the interactive map is available here.
