The Ties that Bind; Migration and Trafficking of Women and Girls

This 2008 ILO report draws on surveys to paint a picture of the Cambodian sex industry that is at odds with accounts provided by sex workers. It conflates sexual exploitation with trafficking,  refers to sex workers as Commercial Sexually Exploited Women and Girls and  fails to distinguish between adults and children.

Claiming to reject the term 'sex work' as political the report is infact highly politicised using an  'abolitionist' conceptual framework.
