This course provides you with an understanding of prostitution from sociological and legal angles. It introduces you to basic gender political discussions surrounding prostitution and explores the ways in which prostitution reflects and shapes gender norms and social hierarchies. We study the sex trade in different parts of the world, but focus on a comparison between Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands as they have radical, but different, approaches to prostitution.
