A brief guide on meaningful involvement of sex workers and their organisations in Central-Eastern Europe and Central Asia (CEECA).
This brief guide builds on the recommendations formulated by the global sex worker movement and aims to provide law and policy makers, researchers, and civil society stakeholders in Central-Eastern Europe and Central Asia (CEECA) with practical advice on how to meaningfully involve sex workers in three areas, namely policymaking, research, and civil society advocacy and programming. The document also illustrates the exclusion mechanisms that sex worker groups currently face in CEECA and describes examples of positive and negative experiences of cooperation in local and international contexts. Finally, it summarises the recommendations of the members of Sex Workers’ Rights Advocacy Network (SWAN) for law and policy makers, researchers, and civil society representatives.
