Community Guide: Migration and Sex Work


Despite the global trend of increasing mobility, migrant workers are still stigmatised and silenced – in politics and media alike. Additionally, migrant sex workers are painted as either victims or criminals in discourses that conflate sex work with human trafficking and deny sex workers the right to migrate. Their human rights are often ignored in favour of driving broader political agendas to restrict migration and criminalise sex work. 

This resource is a Community Guide to the Briefing Paper: Migration and Sex Work. It provides an overview of the full Briefing Paper, and provides key recommendations. It is intended for policy makers, those who design and implement programmes and work directly with sex workers, and as a tool for sex worker-led organisations to utilise in their advocacy for sex workers’ rights.
