Dear List,

We are presently interviewing numerous Kosovan sex workers for a migration
research project in France and the accounts regarding their induction to sex
work is varied. We will report more fully in the Summer regarding this
project. Anyone interested in receiving updates should send us a message
with "updates" in the subject line. We would ask journalists NOT to apply.

However with regards to non-Kosovans engaged in sex work in Kosova part of
the pull to Kosova is that many nationalities do not require visas to enter
Yugoslavia. Once in Kosova it is no longer so easy to transit via Albania to
Italy as local interests now want to keep the women for work in Kosova.

Many women could be diverted from Kosova if other routes to travel to the EU
were available. However because of a reported reduction in "entertainer"
visas for Belgium and Switzerland intended to prevent "trafficking", many
women now have to use far more hazardous routes of entry into Western
Europe.

There seems to be a growing policy of seeking to restrict the movement of
women, as a means of protecting them.
