This autumn, we are very excited to bring our Call to Action to the streets of Brussels and the halls of the European Parliament!
This conference will be an opportunity to mark the progress that has been made towards an abolitionist Europe in the years since the EU took a stance on the issue, will highlight the strength of support for this movement to continue, highlight the ongoing role Europe plays in the system of prostitution worldwide, and will set out our goals for the term of the next European Parliament, 2019-2024.
Over the course of the day, we will hear from international experts: survivors, leading campaigners, researchers and Members of Parliament who support the Equality model and wish to combat the continuing harm of the sex industry. We will explore emerging trends of the modern sex trade, including:
The opportunities for a stronger European response and EU’s role and responsibility in the global sex trade, including further increasing uptake of the Equality Model across Europe and inclusion of these principles in a European Directive on Violence Against Women. We will identify opportunities for change, collaborate on solutions and set our goals for the coming Parliamentary term in partnership with champions both within and alongside the European Parliament.
More information coming soon!
