Ethical Guidelines for Government Employees prohibiting the Purchase and Acceptance of Sexual Services
On 17 October, 2002, the Norwegian government resolved to introduce ethical guidelines for civil servants to prohibit the purchase and acceptance of sexual services. The reason for the resolution is the increasing problem posed by international prostitution and the trafficking of women and children for sexual purposes. Demand for sexual services forms part of the basis for such trafficking.
