The escort branche

Supervision and enforcement (full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

On 10 November 2009 a legislative proposal was submitted on rules regulating prostitution and combatting abuse in the sex industry (Wrp) with the objective of reducing local and regional differences, gaining more insight into and control over the sex industry by regulating prostitution as a business and facilitating supervision and enforcement. Once the Wrp has been adopted all municipalities will have to introduce a licensing requirement for prostitution businesses, including escort businesses. Some municipalities have already been issuing licenses for escort businesses for many years. But this does not mean that all escort businesses and escorts working independently apply for a license. At the time of writing, the Wrp has not yet been adopted.
The core research question is:
What form of supervision and enforcement is applied to the escort branch, what were the results, problems and secondary effects, how can municipalities improve compliance within the escort branch and what good practices are there for supervision and enforcement in this field?
