Below are just some of the many studies, reports and informative essays on the global sex trades. While each is roughly categorized, almost all touch on multiple issues and are tagged to be more searchable. Not all of the tags are terms used by the groups who produced the reports, especially around trafficking and youth, and are only included for ease of searching.
