A book by Kara S that seeks to provide a business analysis of sex trafficking, focusing on the local drivers and global macroeconomic trends that gave rise to the industry after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

A blog by Laura Agustín who writes as a lifelong migrant and sometime worker in both nongovernmental and academic projects about sex, travel and work. Her lively and engaging blog covers issues of migration and sex.
