Debate about the new Prostitute Protection Act

Prof. Döring publishes in Zeitschrift für Sexualforschung

Zeitschrift für Sexualforschung

The new Prostitute Protection Act ProstSchG came into force in 2017. How is this law to be assessed? Prof. Dr. Nicola Döring explores this question in her introduction to the scientific debate on the topic. She outlines the state of research on prostitution in Germany, presents four contributions to the debate and points out the urgent need for research. Morally controversial issues such as prostitution require methodologically sophisticated empirical studies. Not only sex research is required to counter the circulating myths and opinions about prostitution with scientifically sound findings.
