We expand and build the evidence base by:

  • Leading and assisting the development of the evidence base on sex workers rights through our own research, academic institutions and allied movements.
  • Working with our members at the national level to support high quality, community-led research.
  • Developing accurate, accessible information resources.

Use research and evidence to promote rights-based laws and policies by:

  • Basing our advocacy and activism on evidence, lived experience and what works best for the protection of human rights.
  • Making this evidence accessible and using it to inform political debate and decision making.
  • Demanding accountability from leaders who make policy and introduce laws based on biased assumptions, moral judgements or prejudices, rather than evidence.
