March 2019: Northern Territory Releases Discussion Paper

The Northern Territory government publishes a Discussion Paper “Reforming Regulation of the Sex Industry in the Northern Territory”. This marks a significant development in the Northern Territory’s march to decriminalise sex work. It also indicates the Territory is years ahead of Victoria on the issue of sex worker’s rights. This is significant because the progressive state of Victoria often considers itself ‘ahead’ of the Northern Territory on matters of social reform.
