1. Collateral Damage: Sex Workers and the Anti-Trafficking Campaigns

Anti-trafficking is a sacred cow, but behind this humanitarian concern is a century-old movement that historically reflects xenophobia, discrimination and prostitution abolitionism. Collateral Damage demonstrates the way the historic “White Slavery” moral panic and current anti-trafficking campaigns have been largely responsible for prostitution prohibitionism, racial discrimination, and xenophobic immigration legislation.
