SEX WORK IS NOT TRAFFICKING

(NSPW, 2011)

This 12 page briefing paper explains how sex work and demand for sex work are conflated with trafficking. It looks at the legal frameworks and media coverage that cause this confusion. And it summarises the dangers of this confusion, including the harmful impacts on sex workers’ lives and work, and on sex worker led programming. The paper offers recommendations for policy makers, donors and civil society. (A shorter, 5 page version is also available.)
