Abstract

Mega-events have caused controversy all over the world, given the transformations that they prompt in the hosting cities. In Brazil, however, the build-up to the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics has been used as a consciousness-raising environment by marginalised groups, including sex workers. In this post, Janine Ewen discusses her research around sex workers’ mobilisation against social discrimination and how their movement makes a direct case for harm reduction methods in Brazil.
