Sweden is a destination and, to a lesser extent, source and transit country for children subjected to trafficking for sexual purposes. Victims largely originate from Eastern Europe, West Africa, Asia, and Western Europe.

In December 2014, the County Administrative Board of Stockholm launched the website Resekurage (Travel Courage), in collaboration with the Swedish police and the National Methodological Support against Prostitution and Human Trafficking (NMT). This projects aims at informing the public about the prevalence of sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism and offering an online system to report suspected child sexual exploitation’s cases committed by tourists abroad.
