Child Trafficking in the Nordic Countries
United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), December 2011, 64 pages
The aim of this study is to improve the understanding of child trafficking and responses in the Nordic region. It is based on data and information gathered by the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre and the National Committees for UNICEF in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
The study confirms that the Nordic countries have made significant attempts to address the issue of child trafficking, by setting up relevant institutions, developing action plans and allocating budgets
However, the report points to the fact that there is a need for better statistics about the children victims of trafficking and sometimes the fragmentation of services leave some children unprotected.
