This briefing paper is based on a scoping literature review of existing research on homicide and sex work as well as empirical analysis of a database of sex worker homicides in the UK between 1990 - 2016. It is part of a wider Wellcome Trust Seed Award project, which aims to understand how occupational health and safety differs between sex workers and other professions which are established as ‘risky’ because of the elevated prevalence of violence/homicide in the workplace and poor mental health.
