‘ Don’t rape’ book for im­mi­grants

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

THE Swedish gov­ern­ment has is­sued a hand­book to help teach teen mi­grants not to rape women.

The book­let is meant to pro­vide guid­ance for adults who come into close con­tact with new ar­rivals, like so­cial work­ers and foster fam­i­lies.

It has been pub­lished by the Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil So­ci­ety, af­ter see­ing a ‘ great need for young new ar­rivals to get more knowl­edge on the sub­jects’.

The leaflet is de­scribed as a ‘guid­ance on speak­ing with young new ar­rivals about ques­tions re­gard­ing health, sex and equal­ity’.

Di­rec­tor gen­eral Lena Ny­berg ad­mits the leaflet is, in part, a re­sponse to re­cent re­ports on rapes and assaults in­volv­ing teenage mi­grants, and is a step to­wards pre­vent­ing sex­ual assaults.

Ny­bergh said: “One of many parts is dis­cussing with girls and boys what you are al­lowed and not al­lowed to do.”
