New York, NY (January 8, 2016) – The Leitner Center for International Law and Justice is pleased to announce the publication of Professor Chi Adanna Mgbako’s new book To Live Freely in This World: Sex Worker Activism in Africa (NYU Press). Based on original fieldwork in seven African countries, including Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, and Uganda, the book documents the rise of the African sex workers’ rights movement, with a focus on the stories of activists themselves. Drawing on over 160 interviews with sex worker activists throughout the continent, Professor Mgbako weaves their voices and experiences into a compelling narrative about the history and ambitions of this inspiring movement.

Chi Mgbako is clinical professor of law and director of the Walter Leitner International Human Rights Clinic in the Leitner Center for International Law and Justice at Fordham Law School.
