Part-time lecturer

Ten years of professional experience in international migration, human trafficking, sex work-research, socio-cultural and gender analysis through assignments as researcher, lecturer and consultant at various institutes of higher learning, an UN agency and other public institutions in Denmark and abroad. From 2006 the research merged with documentary film making as a way to communicate research to a broader audience. This has so far resulted in three award winning feature documentaries and one short film on the topics of international migration, sex work and human trafficking.

Women, Sex & Migration – Seeing sex work migration and human trafficking from the Global South

 

Sex work migration and human trafficking into the EU has received mounting attention and is seen as one of the major societal challenges (European Commission 2014). Yet, despite the attention given to the vulnerabilities of women migrants upon arrival to the EU, the question is how these types of migrations influence the communities in the Global South from where women’s migration to the EU continues to be rampant. Contemporary critical trafficking studies furthermore argue that the precise point at which tolerable forms of sex work migration end and human trafficking begins will vary according to political and moral values not easily captured by legal definitions (Anderson and Davidson 2003; Doezema 2010). This project investigates these questions by exploring how sex work migration and human trafficking are practiced, perceived and have impacted two communities in Thailand and Nigeria over time.
