What is to be done about prostitution? Is it work or is it violence? Are women in prostitution offenders and/or victims? Is prostitution a private or a political issue? The answers to these questions vary depending on where in the world you live. Written in a simple and accessible style this book makes an important contribution to academic and policy debates around prostitution and law at an international level. The book provides a valuable, detailed, international comparison of the laws, policies, and interventions relating to prostitution in eight countries across Europe and Asia. It includes case studies that are brought to life by giving voice to the experiences of prostitutes themselves, together with the personal reflections of the authors. The book also faces key issues, particularly relating to reasons for entering prostitution.
