There lack of prosections and verdicts on labour trafficking raises the ia question whether there are differences in how this phenomenon is understood, conceptualized and controlled in the Nordic countries. The issue of of how to conceptualize the distinctions between “mere” exploitation and trafficking for forced fabour was also discussed.
