Combating Human Trafficking: The Swedish Experience

Issue & Policy Briefs April 16, 2010, No. 25

In Europe, trafficking has become an increasing problem over the last two decades because of ever more porous borders and the European integration, which has created a flexible milieu for organized criminals seeking to capitalize on the demand for purchasing sex.
