ADVOCACY TOOLKIT: THE REAL IMPACT OF THE SWEDISH MODEL ON SEX WORKERS (NSWP, 2015)

This set of eight briefing papers from NSWP is a comprehensive, evidence-based analysis of the laws surrounding sex work in Sweden where the purchase of sex is criminalised. This legal model - variously known as the ‘Swedish’, ‘Nordic’ or ‘End  Demand’ model - is widely promoted around the world as effective in protecting women from violence and exploitation. This toolkit outlines the reality and the consequences of the law in terms of the safety and wellbeing of sex workers in Sweden, and highlights the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation.
