A focus on human trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation often results in human trafficking being conflated with sex work and as a consequence there is a failure to distinguish migrant women who sell sex from ‘victims’ of human trafficking. Drawing from interviews and ethnographic fieldwork in South Africa, this paper considers the complex everyday lives of women who cross state borders and sell sex in South Africa. It explores how their experiences counteract and complicate simplistic ideas around sex work and human trafficking and highlights the multiple vulnerabilities faced by migrant women who sell sex, many of which are heightened by anti-trafficking measures.</dcterms:abstract> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
