dc.description.abstract Sex work regulation is controversial in many countries. Sex workers are typically left out of decision- and policy-making, despite their in-depth knowledge based on personal experiences that can inform the laws that significantly impact their livelihoods. This research shows that a criminalization framework presents many challenges for sex workers and that decriminalization is favoured by most of the study participants, however, some also see personal financial drawbacks in regulating their industry. en_US
