Speaker information

Prof Graham Scambler, Professor of Medical Sociology, UCL Institute of Epidemiology & Health

To mark World AIDS Day, this lecture offers a characterisation of contemporary sex work in London, a debunking of some popular myths, and a framework within which policy issues in this area might appropriately be addressed. In an era of enhanced migration, a 'relativisation' of morals and a preoccupation with risks to health, Prof Scambler argues that respect for evidence in addressing sex work is crucial.
