regulation

A framework of sex work related laws by The Law & Policy Project at Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University. Few systematic accounts of sex work related laws have ever been published perhaps because language, tools and resources for gathering relevant data have never been in place. This paper is an attempt to systematically list and categorise the laws that affect sex workers in different countries into a framework.

decriminalisation

A decision by the Labour Appeal’s Court, to overturn a 2008 ruling by the Labour Court that a sex worker is not entitled to protection against unfair dismissal as the field of work itself is criminal, could be opening up a Pandora’s Box.

This paper examines the position of prostitutes (and of ex-prostitutes and women seen to behave ‘like prostitutes’) in reported rape trials in Britain, Australia and Canada over the last 150 years. It suggests sex workers suffer a high incidence of sexual assault and asserts that until recently, it was almost impossible for sex workers to seek justice for these crimes. Charges of rape made by sex workers were often not taken seriously by the police and courts. A framework of sex work related laws by The Law & Policy Project at Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University. Few systematic accounts
