Sex Work and Laws In South Asia

This monograph attempts to demystify and explain the content of the prevalent laws in the region which are relevant to activists and practitioners working in the field. Available legislation and case law have been analyzed from the point of view of the issues of conflation of trafficking and sex work, rights of sex workers to live in liberty and dignity, the right to move freely, the right to reside in a place of choice, the right to migrate, forced and voluntary sex work, entry of minors, rescue and rehabilitation.

The material available is uneven in respect to the countries in the region and this in turn is reflected in the document. Most material was available with regard to India and Sri Lanka, then Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. Myanmar has not been included because of the difficulty of obtaining English translations of these documents in Burmese.
