2015 PROSTCOST (Project ISEC 2012 n°HOME/2012/ISEC/AG/THB/4000003893)
- While the income brought in by prostitution is often brought to light, nothing is said of the fact that human trafficking for prostitution has a heavy economic cost to society
- The aim of the project is to build a model to estimate the cost of prostitution trafficking in France, its weight on society, including for its victims
- This model will be transposable to other MS. This project is innovative in France, as in the other MS, because such a study has never been conducted before
- To the ethical and legal arguments usually put forward in the fight against prostitution, we wish to add economic arguments.
