National Referral Mechanism
– A support and protection process for victims of trafficking in human beings in Sweden
National Referral Mechanism is a revised version of the publication that the County Administrative Board of Stockholm launched in 2016.
The Swedish Gender Equality Agency is responsible for coordinating Sweden’s efforts to counteract prostitution and trafficking in human beings. The agency coordinates Sweden’s efforts to combat trafficking in human beings for all purposes, establishes collaborations between authorities and other actors and assists authorities with method support and skills development.
In connection with this work, the agency has updated the National Referral Mechanism. The National Referral Mechanism offers guidance for professionals and contributes to increased cross-agency cooperation.
