A grant to support targeted activities designed to maintain coordination of the International Committee on the RIghts of Sex Workers' (ICRSE) membership and activities; facilitate and support on-going communication with and between members and external allies; enable the sharing of experience, information, resources and strategies; and maintain a platform to advocate for the human and civil rights of sex workers in Europe and beyond.

The ICRSE was established in 2004 and aims to raise awareness about the social exclusion of female, male and transgender sex workers in Europe; to promote the human and civil rights of all sex workers at national, regional and global levels; and to create strong alliances between sex workers, allies and other civil society organizations. The ICRSE maintains strong links with existing sub-regional, regional and global networks, supports the further development of nascent groups and networks of sex workers and provides a platform for the voices of sex workers in Europe to be heard in local, regional and global policy debates.
