Canadian sex worker-led organisation Stella, l’amie de Maimie developed these guidelines for acceptable research partnerships with the organisation. The guidelines set out core principles for both researchers seeking partnership and Stella.

Guidelines for acceptable research include:

  • Meaningful involvement of the sex worker organisation at every stage of the research project
  • Use of community-based research methods
  • Research empowers, benefits, and builds the capacity of sex worker communities.

These guidelines will be useful to sex worker organisations seeking to develop their own ground-rules and standards for engaging with researchers.
