Commission: ‘Utrecht must offer space to sex workers, but on a small scale and with fewer rules’

Commission Utrecht must offer space to sex workers but on

“It is a legal profession, there must be room for it and let’s make sure that sex work is done safely,” the committee’s advice begins. The way to do that is, according to the report, “don’t think in terms of problems, but rather in solutions”. The municipality is called upon to get to work and also to involve sex workers in policy. And that policy should above all be smaller-scale, more modern and with fewer rules. In addition, testing grounds should be set up to see what does work.
