The final comparative report of the Disrupt Demand project ( was published in January 2019 by our partners, the Immigrant Council of Ireland.

Click to read about our contribution to the project that was designed to support efforts to prevent human trafficking for sexual exploitation by reducing demand, through mapping and analysing successful strategies involving legal changes, and fostering co-operation among key stakeholders.

In the mean time, the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies also put together a toolkit to support non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to
plan and implement effective advocacy regarding legislative measures
to discourage demand for sex trafficking.

The toolkit first sets out the critical links between human trafficking for the
purposes of sexual exploitation, the system of prostitution and the issue of demand, and goes on to lay out best practices for NGOs who are in the process of tackling the demand side of sex trafficking by bringing about legislative change.
