Resources

NSWP collects documents and other materials about sex work and makes them publicly available on our website. The resources go back to 1992 and contain documents and photographs about the development of the sex worker rights movement, policy position papers from sex worker organisations around the world, academic papers about health, labour, legal frameworks, and migration, and NSWP briefing papers and publications, including Making Sex Work Safe and the NSWP peer-reviewed journal Research for Sex Work.

We focus on providing resources that support the core values of NSWP but we also include and critique some resources that do not promote our perspective.

Resources are organised by theme, region, year, language and resource type, so that they can be easily browsed. The search feature can be used to find resources on specific issues by entering in key words or authors’ names.

Note that resources that are available in French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian are on the language specific sections of this website.

NSWP is developing Research for Sex Work as a platform for building a broader collaboration with academia, initially through an email listserv to which members will be asked to nominate academics and community researchers.

This paper is the first briefing paper in a series that make up The Real Impact of the Swedish Model: Advocacy Toolkit

The fourth of this series concentrates on laws and policies other than the Swedish model itself. It describes how these are used by the Swedish state and the police to directly destabilise the lives of sex workers in Sweden. 

This advocacy toolkit serves to highlight the harms associated with this approach of criminalisation, both in relation to the simplistic and crude understandings of sex work and of sex workers that are used to justify the law, and in relation to the direct outcomes of the resulting legal framework of criminalising the purchase of sex. In contrast to claims that the Swedish model is a necessary and effective approach in protecting women from violence and exploitation, sex workers in Sweden note worrying consequences of the law in terms of their safety and wellbeing.

The Anti-Trafficking Review is published by the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW), a network of over 100 NGOs worldwide focused on promoting and advancing the human rights of migrants and trafficked persons.

This Review explores what happens to the money and how the money to combat human trafficking is spent that is allocated by governments and private donors to stop human trafficking and to assist people who have been trafficked.

This publication includes a selection of activities undertaken and achievements made during the first 28 months of the Bridging the Gaps programme.

This resource by SWOP-USA invites people from around the world to remember victims of violence, and motivates people to come together to demonstrate against discrimination and marginalisation on 17 December – the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.
