Activity: Visiting another research institution
The aim of COST Action IS1209 ‘Comparing European Prostitution Policies: Understanding Scales and Cultures of Governance’ (ProsPol) is to exchange, enhance and compare knowledge about prostitution policies across Europe. By offering insight into the empirical effects and contexts of various regulatory regimes and techniques, the Action intends to provide 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 this field. The Action aims to inform future prostitution research and policy including comparative work between different prostitution policy regimes and their effects.
The aim of STSMs, as defined by COST guidelines, is to support individual mobility, strengthen the existing Action network, to allow scientists/researchers to gain access to resources that are not available in their own countries, and to foster collaborations to contribute to the scientific objectives of the Action.
