After a long debate, Ireland finally adopts the Nordic model, like Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Canada and, more recently, France (2016), but also Northern Ireland (2015) which was the 1st UK region to have the purchase of a sexual act sentenced. The Fondation Scelles greets this major victory and invites all to support this abolitionist outburst.
