Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to examine how the Swedish implementation of the new trafficking laws may differ from the original intention from the UN and EU and if they are substandard due to poorly conducted law implementation. Or if it might be a victim of political symbolism, to win support and votes for the politicians in power from the people, a ”hollow showpiece” only meant to be shown off.


Trafficking is a relatively new phenomena and problem to be researched and discussed. This paper investigates the impact of the Palermo protocols international definition of the problem, the convention against organized crime presented by the European Union on the Swedish legal system and its action plan. A qualitative text analysis focusing on the discourse of the intentions behind the internationally presented legal documents and compared against the carrying out of said national objectives. In the end this is all contrasted against studies of law implementation and political symbolism.    

The result shows that dispite the fact that a strong ”hands-on” action-plan implemented by the Swedish government was carried out at an early stage there has been no further action to follow up on the degree of education and spreading of information amongst the authorities meeting the people affected by this problem.
