Abstract [en]

Children who are victims of human trafficking are in a vulnerable situation and subject to great exposure. Therefore, they must receive help and protection. To receive this, the trafficking victim needs to be identified by the authorities. In Sweden however, there are a great number of child trafficking victims that are not identified. Therefore, they will remain invisible and will not receive the help and protection they are entitled too. Because of the significant number of child trafficking victims that are not identified in Sweden, this thesis examines whether Sweden is meeting its international obligations to identify child trafficking victims. This thesis claims that Sweden is not meeting its international obligations to identify child trafficking victims to give them the help and protection that they are entitled to. This is due to several shortcomings in the Swedish system, such as lack of sufficient outreach work and training of authorities. Also, there is a discrepancy between Sweden’s international obligations and the national framework regarding when potential victims of child trafficking should receive a temporary lawful residence and help and protection.
