European Conference on Sex Work, Human Rights, Labour and Migration

The European Conference on Sex Work, Human Rights, Labour and Migration was held 15- 17 October 2005 in Brussels. I was a member of the Organising Committee, which began meeting in January 2004 in Amsterdam, usually at the headquarters of Mama Cash.

The website for the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe is full of resources and can tell you what happened at the conference and what’s happening around Europe now better than I can.

Of particular interest for rights activists is the Sex Workers in Europe Manifesto, the product of a consultation carried out with sex workers throughout Europe.  You can see the Manifesto in English, РУССКИЙ, Deutsch, Français, Español, Italiano, Ελληνικά, Slovensky and Български.

Note the wording: This conference was not about ‘Europeans’ but people working in Europe. Many of the workers who came to the conference were migrants.
