    Partial revisions of both the Act on the Prevention of Commercial Sex Acts and Protection, etc. of Victims and the Sexual Violence Prevention and Victims Protection Act were announced and took effect on April 17, 2018. Previous versions of the laws failed to maximize preventive education by simply stating that general citizens who were not subject to mandatory education could take such education at specialized organizations, including anti-prostitution counseling centers, but fell short of clarifying who was responsible for the execution of this provision.

     

    The revised laws stipulate that both the Minister of Gender Equality and Family and city/provincial governors have the authority and responsibility to implement preventive education on prostitution and sexual violence and that the education can be commissioned to specialized organizations. It is expected that this revision will enable more systematic and sustained public education on the prevention of prostitution and sexual violence.
