On 1 January 1999, Sweden became the first country in the world to introduce legislation criminalising the purchase, but not the sale, of sexual services. This report, which has an English summary, evaluates the application of the ban on the purchase of sexual services and the effects that prohibition has had.
The researchers have investigated how the provision has worked in practice and what effects the ban has had on the prevalence of prostitution and human trafficking for sexual purposes in Sweden.
