This European Mapping Report is one of the products of the TAMPEP 8 project. Sixteen years’ experience of working with sex workers across Europe and the development of a network of sex work projects currently covering 25 countries in Europe have resulted in TAMPEP establishing an extensive experience and knowledge base. Regular mapping of sex work in Europe has enabled the monitoring and reporting of changing trends within the sex industry and the living and working conditions of sex workers. Annexes to this report are separate documents within the NSWP resource listing.
