The talk focuses specifically on sex workers rights and how these were mobilised by the workers themselves within the framework of the European Union. The talk concentrates on acts of citizenship that stretch across boundaries, which also produce new subjects and scales of citizenship. By investigating acts, the talk expands the focus from what people say (opinions, perceptions, attitudes) to what people do – an important supplement, and sometimes a corrective, to a conventional focus on what people or authorities (EU as well as national courts, agencies, organisations) say about European citizenship and identification.
