The legal and social treatment of prostitution differs widely by country.
Very liberal prostitution policies exist in the Netherlands and Germany, and these countries are major destinations for international sex tourism.
Below is a rough grouping of these countries into regions: Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia)The Balkans have a rich, though often turbulent, history with wonderful nature, charming multicultural towns, impressive monasteries and citadels dotting the hillsides, mighty mountains sprinkled with a liberal dose of beautiful forests and pleasant lakes.
Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania)Three fascinating states that have glorious beaches along an extensive coastline, mediaeval old towns, and beautiful natural scenery.
It's not surprising that men and women value different things in the workplace, but employers aren't necessarily paying attention to the details.Estonia has linguistic and cultural ties with Finland.Benelux (Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands)These supposedly flat states have a lot to offer the traveller.In many places there is a big discrepancy between the laws which exist on the books and what happens in practice.Depending on the country, various prostitution related activities may be prohibited (where a specific law forbids such activity), decriminalized (where there is no specific law either forbidding or allowing and regulating the activity), or regulated (where a specific law explicitly allows and regulates the activity if certain conditions are met).
How are organizations striking the balance between new initiatives and cost control?
