Index number: POL 40/4061/2016. This summary report provides an overview of the key research findings, highlighting the range and extent of human rights abuses and violations suffered by sex workers. It shows how sex workers face stigma and marginalization, physical and sexual violence, barriers to protection from violence and crime, extortion and coercive police measures, and obstacles to securing their rights to health and housing. The summary report also provides a brief outline of Amnesty International’s policy and identifies a range of government actions it believes are necessary to best address the barriers that sex workers routinely face in realizing their rights.
