Celebrating 20 Years: Lessons Learned from the Decriminalisation of Sex Work in Australia

Zahra Stardust

In Australia, models of sex work regulation vary across jurisdictions, providing a unique standpoint to compare the effects of criminalisation, licensing and decriminalisation. Sex work was decriminalised in New South Wales in 1995 in response to Royal Commission findings of systemic police corruption. Decriminalisation removes police as regulators, removes criminal laws, and regulates sex work through standard occupational, planning and industrial mechanisms. On our 20th anniversary, we reflect on our lessons learned.
