(p.173) Chapter 7 Conclusion
Cosmopolitan Sex Workers

Christine B. N. Chin

Oxford University Press

Chapter Seven concludes the study by discussing major findings and their implications. Women’s transnational migration for sex work occurs in and is fueled by structural constraints and opportunities born from the marriage of patriarchal power with free market economies. Until and unless structural forces are acknowledged and addressed comprehensively, policies based explicitly on ‘either-or’ positions relating to sex trafficking, migration prostitution, illegal aliens, and so forth will obscure, if not perpetuate, contradictions.

Keywords:   Patriarchal power, Free market economy, Contradictions, Structural forces
