Intake interviews with sex workers by local authorities

Intake interviews with sex workers by local authorities

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Since 2009, the Dutch government has been proposing to implement new legislation to combat abuse in prostitution. Part of this legislative proposal was national mandatory registration of prostitutes that included a direct meeting between authorities and prostitutes. During this face-to-face contact moment, information can be provided to the prostitute and possible signs of abuse can be detected by the authorities.
The study’s objectives are to identify how these meetings with prostitutes in Utrecht, The Hague and Amsterdam are set up, to obtain an overview of the practical experiences of those involved in the intake interviews, and to provide insight into how the meetings can contribute to preventing abuse in prostitution.
