SEXHUM compares and analyses migrants’ experiences of sex work, exploitation, and trafficking, as well as examining the impact of sexual humanitarian policies and interventions on their lives and rights.
The project started on 1st October 2016 and will conclude on 30th September 2020.
Six post-doctoral researchers carried out qualitative ethnographic research and interviews in four national settings that are characterized by different policies on migration, sex work (criminalisation, regulation, de-criminalisation) and trafficking:
- Australia (Sydney and Melbourne)
- France (Paris and Marseille)
- New Zealand (Auckland and Wellington)
- USA (New York and Los Angeles).
