Title:
What’s love got to do with it? theorising young people’s involvement in prostitution
Authors:
Melrose, Margaret
Abstract:
This article critically considers dominant explanations of young people’s involvement in prostitution, focusing particularly on young adults, in the light of neo-liberal policy developments and the workfare state. It argues that these explanations are limited by the fact that they fail to take into account the underlying conditions that make involvement a viable option. By taking account of these conditions, and the ways in which young people may exercise agency within them, the article offers a more nuanced account of young people’s involvement in prostitution .
