Irish civil society organisations, Unions, NGOs and individuals are coming together to form an alliance and run a public awareness campaign on the dangers of prostitution and sex trafficking and to lobby the Government to introduce legislation to tackle demand for paid sex.
We are working together to combat sex trafficking, and to end the exploitation of women, men and children in Ireland’s sex industry.
This will best be achieved by combating the demand for paid sex that fuels the Irish sex industry by criminalising the purchase of sexual services.
What can be done: The Irish Government has to recognise that the country is in need of a modern approach to prostitution that addresses the current challenges and reflects best international practice. We need a law that tackles demand for paid sex in order to end the exploitation of women, men and children in Ireland’s sex industry. This will be best achieved by criminalising the purchase of sexual services.
