“A significant collection written by scholars, activists and sex workers which debunks the myths of decriminalisation. It critically engages with the impact of the New Zealand model, a huge part of the global decriminalisation movement.” Teela Sanders, University of Leicester
“This is an original contribution to the debates on New Zealand’s decriminalised regime. The authors present an innovative examination of a legal model with international appeal.” Jane Scoular, Strathclyde University
