NSWP CONSENSUS STATEMENT ON SEX WORK, HUMAN RIGHTS, AND THE LAW (NSWP, 2013)

The Consensus Statement is a tool for sex workers' advocacy worldwide. It distills into a consensus the global demands of the sex worker rights movement. The Consensus Statement details eight fundamental rights that sex worker-led groups from around the world identify as crucial targets for their activism and advocacy. These eight rights, if fully realised, would be a huge step towards safeguarding sex workers' human rights, labour rights, and health:

  1. The right to associate and organise;

  2. The right to be protected by the law;

  3. The right to be free from violence;

  4. The right to be free from discrimination;

  5. The right to privacy, and freedom from arbitrary interference;

  6. The right to health;

  7. The right to move and migrate; and

  8. The right to work and free choice of employment.
