Written with Cecilia Benoit, Mikeal Jansson and Kat Kolar, this paper, "Regulating Sex Work: Heterogeneity in Legal Strategies" examines various legal strategies used to regulate the sale and purchase of sexual services. It discusses laws directed toward the control of three groups: sellers, buyers, and third parties. It focuses on three common legal strategies (full criminalization, partial decriminalization, and full decriminalization) and presents a critical assessment of each legal approach.
