Roddick Chair of Violence Against Women at London Metropolitan University
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
"The Swedish regime is not simply a piece of ideological legislation, but a holistic approach to the problems of prostitution....
What emerged strongly from this review, even with the limitations of time and resources, is that most approaches to prostitution lack a coherent philosophical underpinning, from which specific short and longer term aims and objectives could be drawn out and evaluated.... The most coherent approach in terms of philosophy and implementation is that adopted by Sweden, and interestingly it is the only one where no one who sells sex is subject to the criminal law."
Experts Individuals with MDs, JDs, PhDs, individuals with graduate degrees and significant post-graduate involvement in fields relevant to the study of prostitution, and government officials with significant involvement in, or related to, prostitution issues.
