Labelling migrants who sell sex: a case study of Brazilians in Spain and Portugal

Julie Lima De Perez (2015)
abstract
By examining the treatment received by Brazilian migrants who sell sex in Spain and Portugal, this thesis concluded that the concepts of “trafficking victim” and “migrant sex worker” present in the legislation and policies of both developing and developed countries are not static. Rather, the labels imposed on migrants who sell sex are frequently manipulated by both receiving and origin states to serve their own ends. Policies aimed at countering trafficking for sexual exploitation have tackled the issue as primarily a criminal one through actions which are intended to repress both migration and sex work, failing to address the actual needs of victims, as well as the problems which affect all migrants who sell sex.
