Fears of World Cup Sex Trafficking Unfounded

Published tisdag 4 juli 2006 kl 11.44
Berlin Brothel

Despite concerns here about an increase in sex trafficking during the soccer World Cup in Germany, a Swedish-backed report draws the opposite conclusion.

Sweden is one of a handful of European countries where prostitution is somehow outlawed (selling sex is legal here, but buying is not), and there were protests from official circles that legal German brothels would be filled with women forced into the sex trade.

According to the preliminary report, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Authority and the International Organization for Migration, despite the increase in prostitutes, the number of sex customers has dropped in Germany.

An expert involved in the study attributes the results to a combination of information campaigns before the World Cup and regular police monitoring of brothels and sex clubs.
