Is the Nordic model of combating the trafficking of women for sexual purposes to be followed by all member states of the eu? At the moment, the member states still differ considerably in their legislative approaches towards prostitution and the extent to which this is linked to the combat against sex trafficking. In this article the differences between the Nordic and the legalisation model as well as their effects on forced prostitution, human trafficking and women’s right to self-determination will be a central focus. The authors will discuss and compare the approaches and effects as found in Sweden and the Netherlands. By this comparison they will establish whether the Nordic model indeed should be endorsed.
