Moving Toward Decent Sex Work (Empower Foundation, 2016)


Empower Foundation conducted sex worker community research into the working conditions of sex workers in Thailand. This report examines the ILO’s concept of “decent work” as well as other concepts such as forced labour and trafficking. It emphasises the wide range of working experiences between decent work and forced labour; and it calls for the application of a labour rights framework to address all mistreatment of sex workers – not just the extreme of exploitation that meets the trafficking definition.
