According to Swedish law, prostitution is not a crime, but is considered a form of dishonest providing, and may constitute ground for deportation. The Swedish model criminalizes the buyer, and emphasizes the seller as someone being used by others to satisfy their sexual desire. The EU directive requires equal treatment for all union members, which questions the ability to deport people in prostitution. A distinction is created between foreign and Swedish women which limits the ability of the society to offer support and help. We believe this distinction prevents the process towards an equal society. Our purpose is to understand and explain how foreign women in prostitution within EU are affected by Swedish law. To achieve this we have analyzed official documents and by using a critical discourse analysis we have been able to expose the underlying texture of the documents. We have found the strong discourse of the foreign women as the other and the thought of sanitation which problematizes the opportunity for women to be considered as plaintiffs. Today’s globalization enables this distinction between women, the consumption demands it and the strong thought of sanitation maintains the distinction of foreign women in prostitution as the other.
