This report summarizes the presentations, discussions, and recommendations made at a two-day dialogue organized by CREA, NSWP, and OSI held on December 11-12, 2008, in Tarrytown, New York. The “Donor–Activist Dialogue on Sex Work and Trafficking” brought donors, anti–human trafficking advocates, sex workers’ rights activists, researchers, and academics from different countries together to: • Understand some of the language and terms generally used to describe sex work, migration, and trafficking, and how these concepts are interrelated but distinct. • Identify the real life consequences to sex workers and persons trafficked into the sex sector and their families of policies and programs that are premised on the notion that all sex work results from trafficking. • Examine how to leverage existing models that approach sex work from a rights based perspective to stop trafficking into the sex sector. • Recommend how to support and implement anti-trafficking efforts that affirm the rights of sex workers and others affected by anti-trafficking legislation.
