Negotiating Sex Work

Kinney Edith

University of Minnesota Press

Drawing on ethnographic field research in Thailand, Edith Kinney examines the tensions between “crime control” and “rights-based” approaches to human trafficking and exploitation in the Thai sex industry. Her analysis indicates that, despite increasing state-NGO collaborations to address human trafficking in Thailand, their failure to consider the claims and needs articulated by the “victims” themselves contributes to many counter-productive policies.
