Long Abstract: The pilot research study focuses on the demand underlying two sectors where the labour services of trafficked persons are known to be subject to exploitation: prostitution and domestic work. The research study sets out some of the findings of the research concerning employer demand for domesic workers in private households and consumer demand for commercial sexual services in selected European and Asian countries. The research suggests that three related factors are key to explaining the exploitative conditions experienced by many migrant domestic and sex workers: (a) the unregulated nature of the labour market segments in which they work (b) the abundant supply of exploitable labour and (c) the power and malleability of social norms regulating the behaviour of employers and clients.
