Launch of COST Action IS1209: Comparing European Prostitution Policies:Understanding Scales and Cultures of Governance
The aim of the four-year (2013-2017) COST Action IS 1209 ‘Comparing European Prostitution Policies: Understanding Scales and Cultures of Governance’ is to compare and disseminate knowledge about the multiple contexts, features and effects of prostitution policies at the European, national and local levels. The Action intends to achieve this by providing an innovative platform of exchange to enhance understanding of how concepts, policies and practices transfer across national cultures and local contexts, and the implications this has for knowledge exchange and coordination in the field.
The formal launch of the Action includes an open event on 12th September 2013, 1.45-6.15pm, at Senate House (Chancellor’s Hall), London, UK. This event is open to everyone, but registration is needed (£5)
