Doctoral Defence: Narola Olsson - Crime, punishment, and counselling - a study of the local judicial and social work application of prostitution policy in Sweden

Society and economy

The Sex Purchase Act (Chapter 6 Section 11 of the Criminal Code) came into force in 1999. Since then, prostitution policy in Sweden has been aiming to reduce the demand for sexual services by criminalising the purchase of a sexual service but not the selling of a sexual service. This thesis explores how prostitution policy is locally implemented in Sweden, through criminal justice and social work targeting individuals with the experience of purchasing sexual services
