Explanatory note on Amnesty International’s policy on state obligations to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of sex workers
This explanatory note provides additional information to supplement Amnesty International’s policy on state obligations to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of sex workers. It aims to explore key conceptual areas of interest in relation to sex work, and decriminalization in particular, and details the research evidence that informed the development of the policy. This explanatory note is not a stand-alone document and must be read together with the policy. This note also supplements Amnesty International’s four reports based on primary research in different locations that were developed during consideration of the organization’s policy on the human rights of sex workers.
