Discussing Best Practice for Sex Work Research by Non-Sex Workers
I proposed to hold a workshop titled “Research Project Korea: Discussing Best Practice for Sex Work Research by Non-Sex Workers” to direct attention to the situation of sex workers in South Korea and to initiate a discussion about how to best conduct sex work research by non-sex workers, and what topics sex workers would wish to see being researched.
I was invited to stay with a colleague in Kolkata, so I am only looking for funding to cover my flight, visa costs and basic expenses (approx. US$ 1,500). Please note: Research Project Korea does not publish a financial report. All donations are made based on trust. Should I fail to raise the necessary funds, your donation will be used to fund my activities in South Korea. All donations made by sex workers will be refunded, should I fail to meet the fundraising target.
For further details, please read my previous blog posts.
The Sex Worker Freedom Festival is an Official International AIDS Conference 2012 Hub. Supported by Open Society Foundation – Sexual Health and Rights Program, UNAIDS, Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UNFPA, HIVOS, AIDS Fonds and AIDS 2012 conference secretariat.
