’N KRITIESE EVALUERING VAN DIE BELEID TEN OPSIGTE VAN PROSTITUSIE IN SUID-AFRIKA EN ALTERNATIEWE VIR DIE TOEKOMS
Keywords:prostitution, abolition, regulation and the labour approach
This article critically investigates the prohibitionist approach that is currently followed with regard to prostitution in South Africa. The problems of violence, absence of control over the spreading of HIV as well as sexworkers’ lack of labour rights specifically enjoy attention. The alternative approaches of abolition, regulation and the labour approach (followed by some other countries) are investigated with the purpose of new proposals concerning South Africa’s future in this respect. Authors of this article are of a view that an approach, combining a regulating and a labour approach, might lead the way to an improvement in the treatment of prostitution, although it might pose a huge challenge to South Africa as a developing country.
