Nadja Nielsen, Naja Gosham & Nadia Hvolbøl

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The study investigates how Denmark, Sweden and The Netherlands process prostitution in the national legislation. The purpose of the study is to compare the three countries, and thereby get an answer on whether the legislation on prostitution can be seen as an expression for a country’s moral principles. The project thesis is sought answered through theory concerning the feminism, functionalism and social interactionism. Additionally, the project involves the use of the natural law. Discourse analysis will emerge as the central method of the study, due to the textual analysis of the national legislation. The study will additionally contain a comparative analysis of the three countries. As a conclusion, the legislation of the country is seen as an expression of the country’s culture and history. The culture and history indirectly affects the national legislation, despite the countries being part of the same social democratic welfare regime. The study concludes that the national legislation can be seen partially as an expression of a country’s moral principles. The study is relevant for giving a nuanced portrait of diversity, despite common European understanding of a global social problem: Prostitution.
