This special issue brings together a combination of empirical and theoretical papers that focus on public health and harm reduction perspectives, moving the discussion away from arguments about whether to decriminalize sex work or not, to explore how the decriminalization of sex work might work in practice. The aim is to consider new models of practice, problem-solving, and harm reduction in a contemporary context by bringing together academics, activists, NGOs, practitioners, and sex workers in the co-production of knowledge. The special issue is based on the premise that it is possible to produce knowledge on community safety only with community involvement.
