Dangerous Liaisons - A report on the violence women in prostitution in Oslo are exposed to.

Ulla Bjørndah

This is a report commissioned by the municipality of Oslo with support from Ministry of Justice and Public Safety. You can download the PDF from the link provided. Pro Sentret is a pro-prostitution advocacy organization. It is worth reading because it is the subject of debate about what the data gathered proves. You can also read American abolitionist, Samatha Berg's analysis of the report on the Feminist Current blog.

Quote from the report: "In the winter of 2010/11, about two years after the sex purchase law was put into effect, Pro Sentret conducted interviews among employees of support services on their experience concerning the exposure to violence among their clients subsequent to criminalization. This report also contains a discussion about the feedback from that investigation."
