About this book

The Cultural Politics of European Prostitution Reform traces case studies of four European Union countries to reveal the way anxieties over globalization translates into policies to recognize sex workers in some countries, punish prostitutes' clients in others, and protect victims of human trafficking in them all.

Reviews

“This work will likely be read by scholars interested in prostitution specifically and sexuality more broadly, where Mattson succeeds best is in taking a specific social problem and showing how it encapsulates cultural dynamics of an institutional nature. … Mattson’s use of key informant interviews provides a specific and substantial contribution to our understanding of how social problems are articulated ‘in the trenches’ by activists and bureaucrats.” (Bayliss J. Camp, American Journal of Sociology, Vol. 122 (4), January, 2017)
