Greater protection against forced marriage and child marriage
From 1 July 2014, new criminal and civil law provisions apply that strengthen protection against forced marriage and child marriage. Two new offences are introduced in the Swedish Penal Code. In addition, the possibility of children being granted exemption to marry is abolished. The provisions on recognition of foreign marriages are also made more stringent.
