Recently Published — ‘Against the Trend: Resistance to Neo-abolitionism in Australian Anti-trafficking Policy Debates’

CJRC researcher and senior lecturer Dr Erin O’Brien from the School of Justice, Faculty of Law, has recently authored a book chapter published in the edited volume “Feminism, Prostitution and the State”

Dr O’Brien’s chapter titled ‘Against the Trend: Resistance to Neo-abolitionism in Australian Anti-trafficking Policy Debates’ provides a critical account of neo-abolitionist activism within political debates on human trafficking in Australia. It argues that despite some ideological intersections between neo-abolitionism and Federal government approaches to migration, the Nordic Model has largely been rejected as a response to human trafficking due to the trend across several state governments of Australia towards legalisation or decriminalisation of sex work.
