Keywords: Western Europe, Spain, Spanish, sex, prostitution, gender, report, human rights, migrants, resource for all, print  Laura M ª Agustín uses the case of migration of women to work in the sex industry to challenge an always positive concept of 'place'. It argues that there is a discontinuity between the images essential to the NGOs, government officials and other workers that depict sex workers as stripped of their house and subjected to traumatic experiences as trafficked persons, on the one hand and the experiences, expectations and with the Migrants own narrative, on the other. Migrant sex workers are not always forcibly displaced, and when they do, their paths may have later, and often have very positive outcomes as the life of any person. Agustín offers a description of the environments in which they live, these migrant women and transsexuals.  Questioning the concept of place [ES].pdf

Article: XenoClipse

Keywords: English, Spanish, Catalan, Basque, Dutch, Norwegian, German, race, ethnicity, media ethics and diversity, initiatives and projects, online, resources for NGOs, media organizations, community/minority media XenoCLIPse is an action-research, a project about race, media and empowerment. After the successful experience of the consortium’s first collaboration, eCLIPse, the need for a new project involving ethnic minorities as a main target group became clear. This time we would have to go beyond the institutional context of the university, and involve members of (ethno-cultural) minorities through their presence in the media, both as objects and as subjects of information. On the other hand, this new project envisaged empowerment through creating access to new technologies for immigrants and minorities. Our main tool is digital video and its distribution on the net. The idea is to allow people who have difficulties accessing new media and technologies to make and distribute their own information in an easy way and to pass on this knowledge and skills to their peers.
