Declaration of the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe

One of the guests at the SWAN Network Meeting in Budapest was Petra Timmermans, Coordinator of the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe (ICRSE, www.sexworkeurope.org). The main goal of the Committee is to bring sex workers and their allies together on an international level so to further the social acceptance and respect for sex workers, to guarantee their civil rights, and to facilitate communication and advocacy against oppressive laws. Petra presented the Declaration of the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe, one of the cornerstone documents on human rights for sex workers, adopted by more then 200 delegates participating at the European Conference on Sex Work, Human Rights, Labour and Migration held 15 to 17 October in the building of the European Parliament in Brussels.

The Declaration is available in PDF format in English and Russian. Please put it on your website, use it at the meetings, policy briefings, journalists sensitisation seminars, at street rallies, or as reminder before giving a media interview. In case you translate it into your language, please send a copy of the translation to Petra Timmermans and ICRSE on info@sexworkeurope.org. “I really enjoyed the meeting and hope that we continue collaborating” – said Petra. “It has really made me think hard about how we are presenting information on our website and the work we still need to do to promote the ICRSE network.”
