This entails leaving space for the contradictions in women’s narratives to emerge, and to investigate how the social positions women take up relate to their position as both migrants and sex workers. For instance, they had to deal with stigma, not only as prostitutes but sometimes also as ‘Russian’ or ‘eastern European’. Many of the women did not tell partners, family and friends about their sex work, and felt that the danger of deportation and of anti-trafficking media campaigns was that they could be exposed as prostitutes and thus possibly be excluded from their communities of origin.
Scholars use this data as evidence of the organisational capabilities and swift functioning of ‘trafficking’ networks (Orfano, 2003: 199). My data present only one case that supports such a claim. In the case of Ivana, there was less than a week gap between when she was first approached by a third party and her decision to accept the offer. The third party imposed on Ivana a quick departure in order to manipulate the respondent easier and to keep up the deception about the type of the work she was expected to perform abroad.
Women’s accounts of their migration to Italy challenge the narrative of victims and organised crime and point to the need to take issues with the accepted notions of deception and coercion as constitutive of eastern European women’s migration for sex work. I begin by tackling questions relative to the travel and ‘recruitment’ process and investigate respondents’ crossborder movements. I suggest that the impact of border controls and visa policies on women’s lives is a crucial element to be considered in the analysis of women’s migration in Europe.
