Planning for Sex Work


1 April 2010

About the talk:
The inclusion or exclusion of sex work and red-light districts in cities and urban areas continues to challenge urban planners. This talk by Professor Hubbard will engage with on-going debates about the regulation of sex work in the city.

Drawing on international examples and experiences, Hubbard will explore the changing place of commercial sex in the city and consider the challenges this poses in an era when the creation of an inclusive, safe and gender-neutral city is an explicit aim for many city planners and urban governors.

About the speaker:
Phil Hubbard is Professor of Urban Geography at Loughborough University, UK. Hubbard is internationally renowned for his work on urban social inclusion/exclusion, gentrification and the regulation of sex work.

This Thursday Night Lecture is cohosted by the Planning Research Centre.

Professor Alan Peters, Director, Planning Research Centre, will introduce the talk.
