Legislation, rights protection and assistanceDevelopment of Inter-disciplinary Cooperation in Hungary to Combat Prostitution and Trafficking for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation and to Support Victims, 2010. MONA Foundation, in cooperation with NANE and PATENT experts presents this handbook to contribute to the creation of an efficient and coherent legal framework to promote the reduction of prostitution and human trafficking. The handbook also seeks to lay the foundations of a multi-layered institutional network based on interdisciplinary cooperation that can provide services for victims, ranging from prevention to long-term assistance services. The handbook is based on the conviction that one of the greatest hindrances for the attainment of gender equality is the socially embedded nature of different forms of violence against women—including prostitution—, the impunity of the perpetrators, and the lack of recognition and protection of the human rights of women who have suffered violence.
