Measuring the Impacts of Amnesty International’s Resolution on Protecting the Human Rights of Sex Workers


In August 2015, the International Council of Amnesty International voted in favour of a resolution to develop and adopt a policy that protects the human rights of sex  workers, including full  decriminalisation of all aspects of consensual sex work between adults. This case study reflects on the process towards Amnesty International's resolution, its impact so far and on the roles of NSWP and NSWP member organisations in this process. It also reflects briefly on the anti-sex work campaigns targeting sex worker organisations and Amnesty International.
