The PLRI site is organised around our priority themes: human rights and law; economics and development; migration and mobility; health and HIV; gender and sexuality and research ethics and methods.
If you want to search the site to find content on a particular topic, for example gender, you can use the Keyword Search function in the left hand column.
At the bottom of each thematic page you will find a list of resources. These resources have been recommended by PLRI members as useful to those interested in research and policy on sex work. Inclusion in the list of resources does not necessarily imply that we agree with the contents or arguments made. But we believe that these resources all have something to offer people wishing to think more deeply about the issues.
You can search the resources by ‘year’ or ‘type of resource’ using the filter buttons.
‘Online pdfs’ are articles and reports that are free to access on the Internet. Many of the links through to journal articles take you to websites where you may need to register or pay to view content. There is an ongoing debate in academia about open access publishing. Many researchers are working hard to make their work available to as wider audience as possible. However, many peer review journals (around 75%) remain inaccessible to readers who do not have a subscription or access to a library with one.
