Abstract
Women who come through attachment relationships to Sweden must stay in the country for two years in order to get their permanent visa.

Women who come through attachment relationships to Sweden must stay in the country for two years in order to get their permanent visa. Consequently, these women risk to be exposed to physical, mental and sexual violence and live in a violent relationship as some of them might not be able to return to their home countries. The issue is complex and current law plays a critical role for the realisation of these women’s human rights, the violence they are exposed to and the question of responsibility.
The aim of the study is to examine and problematize the consequences of and pursuant to the EC directive on family reunification, the “two year rule” in the Swedish Law on Migration and chapter 5 §16 third paragraph concerning reasons to continue to receive a resident permit due to violence or other serious violation. This is achieved by a theory development methodology using ideology analysis and critical feminist theory on law and on the basis of interview material.
The result of this study show how the consequences of the legislation is that the legal system allows, create and maintain conditions for women to be exposed to violence and human rights violations. The consequences of the legislation is that the question of responsibility becomes decentralized and the Migration Board can not prevent men who put in to system to bring women to the country and abuse them, when they are bound by secrecy and the obstacles that the legislation result in. Everybody’s responsibility to ensure these women’s human rights, become no ones responsibility. (Less)
