Abstract
EN
This paper is a comparative summary of the three evaluation reports available to date7 on the new Prostitution Act. It briefly presents the main points of the Act—client criminalization, sup-port for exiting prostitution, combating sexual exploitation, and preventive measures for mi-nors—then compares the main elements of the three reports’ assessments and highlights con-vergences and divergences. The conclusion of this paper highlights the reports’ diametrically opposite explanations for the Act’s failure to “combat the prostitution system.”
