On 16th November 2018 ISWRH, in conjunction with the UK Sex Work Research Hub, held a one-day event at Trinity College, Dublin, in honour of our colleague and friend, Laura Lee.
The event comprised a workshop and roundtable that addressed ‘Advancing a Social Justice Agenda for Sex Workers‘. Presentations were given by Dr Pippa Grenfrell, Dr Leigh-Ann Sweeney, Luca Stevenson and Dr Belinda Brooks-Gordon. The objective was to establish and develop a collaborative sex work research agenda between Ireland and Britain.
The event also marked the launch of the annual ‘Laura Lee Sex Worker Human Rights Public Lecture‘. Keynote was Professor Maggie O’Neill and discussants were: Dr Kathryn McGarry, Professor Jane Scoular, Dr Paul Ryan and Kate McGrew.
The event was concluded with the launch of the new edited collection Realising Social Justice: An Agenda for Change (Edited by: Dr Sharron A. FitzGerald and Dr Kathryn McGarry).
