Norway's closely watched prostitution ban works, study finds

OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's ban on buying sex has reduced human trafficking and has not increased violence against women, as some had feared, a study commissioned by the government said. Following the example of its neighbour Sweden, Norway criminalised buying sex in 2009, but critics said the law would push prostitution underground, making women more vulnerable and increasing the likelihood of violence against them. #United States #India #Japan #Brazil #Arabic #Middle East #Russia #markets #Norway #Sweden #Latin America #Mexico
