This study explores sexualities in relation to migrant mobility in Slovenia, Greece and France, as well as in the digital world as such, beyond national borders and boundaries, taking into consideration bias that regards gender, ethnicity, femininity / masculinity. The report follows a two-tiered analysis: in the first part we trace the positioning of prostitution versus trafficking debate on-line, while the second part debates the core findings of the three case studies.

The aim of our research will be to:
- To undertake research on diverse digital networks linked to the digital representations of sexual practices (such as pornography, dating transnational marriages, and sex work related web-sites and blogs) and study the stereotypical images of migrant men and women therein.
- To identify gender relations within those networks, focusing in particular on representations of masculinity/ femininity, ethnicity, race and culture and tracing the processes through which migrants (and migrant women in particular) become visible or are silenced in sex-related digital spaces.
- To explore he ways in which migrant mobility of sex workers is linked to the production of sex related digital networks.
