Briefing Paper: Migrant Sex Workers

Global Natwork of Sex Worker Projects. 2017.


This briefing paper explores the human rights barriers that migrant sex workers encounter as a result of their mobility and type of labour. It highlights their lack of access to services, as well as the increased precariousness and exclusion they face due to legal restrictions on cross-border
movement, employment in the sex industry and on sex work itself. This paper also places migrant sex work in the context of international labour migration, as opposed to the paradigm of human trafficking, taking regional and country-level consultations with NSWP member organisations as its starting point.
