'Child sex workers in Thailand: what do they need and what is being done?'

On Monday 7th March Dr. Heather Montgomery presented on ‘Child sex workers in Thailand: what do they need and what is being done?’

Dr. Heather Montgomery is a social anthropologist who, as part of her doctoral research, spent 18 months doing fieldwork in a particular community in Thailand which lived off the income earned by child prostitutes. These children lived with their families and she looked at the relationships between parents and children and also between the children and their Western clients. Dr. Montgomery's presentation explored the complex issues in responding effectively to the needs and issues of child sex workers.
