Sex work, migration and agency

This research investigates how im/migrant women sex workers negotiate their security, agency and mobility across sex work and migration regulatory frameworks in Melbourne, Australia and Vancouver, Canada.

Situating this exploration in Vancouver and Melbourne offers two different regulatory environments for sex work in cities that share a similar British settler/colonial history, numerous ethnic communities, and a similar urban ethos that values multiculturalism.
