Irish Sex Work Research Network

The Irish Sex Work Research Network (ISWRN) is a platform for those interested in developing and supporting sex work and sexual governance scholarship within the island of Ireland. The network is a resource intended for sharing research on a range of issues that relate to and shape sex work. Topics include, but are not limited to, social justice, human rights, violence, exploitation, health, poverty, gender, migration, trafficking for the purposes of sexual exploitation, law and policy.

ISWRN promotes ethical and robust research to:
• Critique and challenge exclusionary and undemocratic processes that impact sex workers negatively;
• Identify opportunities for collaborative research across partner institutions, partner agencies and individuals domestically and internationally;
• Provide a centre for expertise on sex work research and evaluation and
• To influence law, policy and practice in the field of sex work and sexual governance.

The hub welcomes membership from academics, students, practitioners, sex workers, policy makers, lawyers, advocates and individuals in Ireland or with an interest in the Irish context.
