This two-day conference at the 'Culture House Islands Brygge' in Copenhagen gathers researchers, international experts, police, policy makers, practitioners and ngo's from around the world.

We will share ideas and discuss what can be done to stop the sex industry from expanding and the exploitation of persons in prostitution and trafficking.

In the programme you will find experts from a variety of governmental and nongovernmental organizations. All speakers have unique knowledge, experience or have done specific research on issues concerning sexual exploitation in prostitution and trafficking.
