What Do Transgender Women’s Experiences Tell Us about Law? Towards an Understanding of Law as Legal Complex

Based on ethnographic study conducted in Istanbul, this thesis investigates the effects of law and legal operations on transgender women’s sex work and daily lives, and seeks to disentangle the multidimensional ways through which they and their conduct are governmentalized by law in Turkey.
