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.

HIV prevention efforts are being scaled up globally, to target sex workers as a key affected population in the HIV response. The voices and experiences of sex workers living with HIV are too often rendered invisible: this means that the additional needs and rights of sex workers living with HIV are often overlooked in forums that support the rights of general populations of people living with HIV. This paper sets out the demands of positive sex workers articulated by sex workers themselves.
