Trafficking for sexual exploitation is a heinous crime. The criminalisation of sex work, however, does not protect the rights of victims of trafficking. Conflating prostitution with sexual exploitation, trafficking or gender-based violence negatively impacts both sex workers and victims of trafficking. The criminalisation of sex work is widely opposed by anti-trafficking organisations such as La Strada International, the European NGO Platform against human trafficking and the Global Alliance Against Trafficking in Women.
