The Crime and Justice Programme of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT) have published a joint report entitled ‘Selling Sex in Cape Town’. The report is the first survey and analysis of the sex industry in Cape Town and examines the extent to which sex workers have control over their working conditions in a criminalised industry.
