Sex workers are dichotomised as victims or perpetrators when they are presented as migrants who are vulnerable to sexual exploitation and whose health and morality are in a precarious state. Alternatively, they are depicted as independent breadwinners whose criminalisation pushes them to social margins and leads to health risks. But although they are exposed to violence and deportation, migrants who sell sex do not (always) fall into marginal categories. They sometimes see sex work as least risky option compared to alternatives and rather challenge these categories with their bodies and their lived realities. In migrant sex workers' understanding the border area is a space where they can risk something to secure something. As moving bodies they traverse physical space and blur the centre-margin dichotomy applied in discourses on sex work and migration.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/33288"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-03-10T11:53:04Z</dcterms:available> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2016-03-10T11:53:04Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Hüncke, Anna</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hüncke, Anna</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
