COMMUNITY GUIDE: THE REAL IMPACT OF THE SWEDISH MODEL ON SEX WORKERS (NSWP, 2015)

This 13 page guide is a shorter version of the full advocacy toolkit on the harmful effects of "Swedish model" laws on sex workers. It outlines how sex workers are silenced in discussions, and how these laws increase stigma and the risk of violence, among other harmful effects on the practice of sex work. It also covers how the laws impact on the provision of services to sex workers, and the additional laws which are used to harass sex workers and effectively continue to criminalise their lives.
