Abstract

In this article I present the use of the broad concept of trafficking in the “Buying sex is not a sport” campaign, launched by the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW) against German regulation of prostitution (configuring prostitution as sex work). I trace the development of this 2006 campaign in which conservative and social-democratic parties, churches and anti-globalization organizations joined together at the international level. Finally, I trace the ideological and political reasons for the convergence of left-wing and right-wing forces, along with some leftist theoretical texts on prostitution.
