Review of the Research Studies on the Demand for Prostitution in the European Union and Beyond

  • Andrea Cauduro


At the present time there is a fundamental gap in research knowledge on the demand for trafficked prostitution. In fact, up to now, the most significant literature has mainly focused on prostitutes, traffickers, routes, dynamics of the phenomenon and clients of common prostitution, but almost nothing has been done regarding the demand for trafficked prostitution.

Yet these actors, neglected by scientific studies, play a decisive role in the development of the phenomenon. Obviously, without demand for trafficked prostitutes this segment of the sex market would not exist.
