Sweden and the U.S. have each taken leading roles in the global fight against trafficking in persons (TIP). The U.S. and Sweden are outspoken on the issue of fighting trafficking and have made anti-trafficking a central tenet of their domestic and foreign policies. Both countries have made significant outlays to shelter, protect and naturalize victims of trafficking. Yet the perception of each country is that they each represent a distinct and different model for fighting trafficking in persons. The American approach emphasizes strengthening legal codes and law enforcement tools while enhancing services available to victims, and has led to a victims-centered approach that many countries emulate. The Swedish model criminalizes demand for trafficking and handling the “supply” through more administrative means, and has led to an equality-centered approach that has drawn numerous positive reviews worldwide. A more studied comparison, however, yields a significant number of similarities between the two countries. Both countries believe sex trafficking is a major international issue that requires a mixture of law enforcement, social welfare and foreign policies to solve. Both countries also share a commitment to victims of human trafficking as victims of human rights abuses. This report compares the responses in the U.S. and Sweden to identify synergies and divergences that might impact policymaking and practice in both countries.
