The World Congress for the Abolition of Prostitution is back for a 4th edition!

4th World Congress Abolition Prostitution

After Paris (2014), New-Delhi (2017) and Mainz (2019), CAP International and its 35 member organisations from 28 countries are glad to hold their 4th World Congress against the prostitution of women and girls in Montréal, Canada, from the 1st to the 3rd of June 2024. 

For this 4th edition, CAP International is proud to co-organise the World Congress with its 4 member organisations on the North American continent: CLES – Coordination des Luttes contre l’Exploitation Sexuelle (Montreal), Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter (Vancouver), EVA Center (Boston) and Breaking Free (Minneapolis).

This World Congress will also mark the 10th anniversary of the Coalition.


What is this World Congress about?

The World Congress is the world’s largest Abolitionist event, bringing together a unique panel of survivors, researchers, frontline workers, activists, parliamentarians and officials.

We decided to name this Congress “Equality in Action”. Because the fight for the abolition of the prostitution system is a fight for equality. It is a fight for the abolition of all the sexist, racist and class-based oppressions that push the most marginalised women and girls into the prostitution system.​

This World Congress will address topics that are too often dismissed and address the challenges but also the progress and achievements towards equality.

What about the venue and the program?

The 4th World Congress will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of June 2024 in downtown Montréal, Canada (exact venue to be announced at a later stage). 

There will be panel discussions (translated in English, French and Spanish) with over 40 speakers from all over the world, stands from abolitionist organisations, exhibitions, workshops, side events and more.

The World Congress will also be opened by a World Survivors’ March on Saturday June 1st: you are more than welcome to join us!
