Sex workers face high levels of violence and can be at risk of exploitation and trafficking. Access to justice is often limited due to stigmatisation faced by sex workers and the criminalisation of sex work. Undocumented migrant sex workers in particular risk arrest and deportation when reporting a crime committed against them. In many countries, police and law enforcement authorities can be the main perpetrators of violence against sex workers.
