Harmfully isolated: Criminalizing sex work in Hong Kong: Executive summary

, Index number: ASA 17/4144/2016

Laws in Hong Kong force sex workers to work in isolation, prohibiting them from working with others for their own safety. In addition, immigration laws prohibit migrants and people from mainland China engaging in sex work, making them vulnerable to arrest and deportation. This document summarises the Amnesty International report which brings together testimony from sex workers and public officials, and provides recommendations to end violence and discrimination against sex workers and transgender people.
