Young people, vulnerabilities and prostitution/sex for compensation in the Nordic countries


Young people with experience of prostitution are a group that for several reasons is difficult to reach, both for research and social work. In NIKK’s project “Young women and men, vulnerabilities and prostitution”, knowledge about young people with experiences of prostitution is mapped and analyzed in all Nordic countries. The report Young people, vulnerabilities and prostitution / Sex for compensation in the Nordic countries was developed within the framework of the project.

Fact sheet: Parenthood, violence prevention and masculinity norms


In order to achieve gender equality, men need to get involved in the efforts and masculinity norms need to be challenged. The policy area of men and gender equality is given high priority in the Nordic countries, and a number of measures are implemented accordingly, focusing on everything from men’s violence to parenthood and a revision of the male gender role. This fact sheet demonstrates masculinity research, points to political initiatives made, and includes examples of Nordic collaborations within the field. The fact sheet is made by Nordic Information on Gender (NIKK) at the request of the Nordic Council of Ministers, as part of Sweden’s presidency programme 2018.
