The International Resource Directory on Prostitution.

This book, CD and on-line service will be an international directory of all current and previous research (back 25 years) on prostitution, a bibliography of books and articles on prostitution written by academics, researchers, and sex workers, as well as a listing of all sex worker activists/ advocacy organizations, and health and information organizations/service providers to prostitutes. The directory will contain a short biography of the individual activists, activist organizations and other groups from around the world who work with or write about prostitute related issues. It will also contain a very short synopsis of each study, who participated in the study, who funded the research, who published the results and how the study can be accessed. Also listed will be a phone/ fax number, mailing and internet addresses and a contact name for organizations.

There are anti-prostitution groups and pro-decriminalization groups, people with widely varying opinions and positions on the issue. All of them will be included in the directory with a notation of their philosophical position on prostitution for easier reference.

Additionally, the directory will contain a quick reference chart to state by state and by country comparison of the laws regulating prostitution, penalties where it is illegal, how the laws are applied, and if services are available to prostitutes. A more detailed explanation of the laws and penalties will accompany the sections which list sex worker organizations and service providers for each state/country.

No other book like this currently exists. From South Africa to Moscow, New Zealand to Nova Scotia, prostitution research is an ongoing phenomenon, and yet researchers in many countries seem unaware of other researchers doing identical or similar studies. Many times the wheel is re-invented because no current directory exists of studies that have been conducted.

This book/CD and on-line service can be used as a tool by those who wish to begin research on prostitution. They will be able to access information and methodology used by others to assist them in developing better research strategy. Rather than discourage new research, such a directory can aid those who wish to do advanced studies after reviewing the findings of previous studies.
