About this book


Exploring sexwork and trafficking in a globalized culture and economy, this book offers a critique of increasingly stringent policing worldwide following the UN protocol against trafficking in persons. It highlights the grey area between sex work and trafficking and draws on the themes of gender, migration and deviance.
