Lisa Kerker

Within the Nordic Baltic Network, a comparison of legislation relating to trafficking in human beings have been undertaken. The comparison aims to show the developments, good practises, and challenges as far as legislation goes to combat trafficking in women and guarantee protection for victims of trafficking, by providing a clear picture of the situation in the Nordic Baltic region. The comparison shows ratification status of international legal documents by the Nordic and Baltic countries; national legislation on trafficking in human beings; legislation regarding reflection period, residence permit and compensation; and also legislation on prostitution in the countries in the region.
