This chapter explores government proposals for a prostitution strategy focusing predominantly on: prevention of involvement; fostering routes out; and protecting communities from street-based sex markets. It discusses the proposals' implications for ‘community safety’ within the broader context of New Labour governance and the potential seeds of transformative possibilities and radical democratic praxis contained with New Labour's approach. The chapter argues that there are two major barriers which prevent both imagining and auctioning an inclusive, holistic strategy for prostitution reform in the UK that incorporates rights, redistribution, and recognition, and impacts upon perceptions of community safety.

Keywords:   prostitution strategy, prevention of involvement, fostering routes out, protecting communities, community safety, New Labour governance, UK, rights, redistribution and recognition
