    This study aims to examine why organizations and authorities think girls end up in traffickingand why they re-traffick after getting help. We’ve also chosen to study how the organizationsconsider their work being done and how they think it can be improved. Since Sweden is acountry with pretty low rate of trafficking victims 2016, we included the Mekong Area insoutheast Asia as a comparison. The area differs from Sweden in terms of social, economicaland cultural aspects and has a considerably higher level of vulnerability the same year.Through a qualitative interview study we wanted to receive these answers and the empiricaldata that we achieved was derived from 11 interviews where three were from agencies andseven from organizations working with this issue. The theory we use belongs to stigmatizationfrom a perspective interactionist, social bond and a gender section. The results obtained are thatmany people ending up in trafficking because of economical issues and hoping for a better life.Many people re-traffick after they received help because their self-image has negativelychanged and the society has stigmatized them for their situation. The interviewers meant thattheir work is progressing however there is still a lot of work to do for it to be perfect, focusingon cooperation and knowledge.
