The overall purpose of this Bachelor´s thesis is to gain a deeper understanding of how perceptions of the Swedish contact prohibition Act looks from the perspective of prosecutors and employees of women- and shelter protection organizations. By examining these two groups perceptions, the expectation is to form a comprehensive understanding of the legal area and how it can be approved. The data has been collected by surveys, interviews, mail correspondence and a secondary analysis of relevant academic literature, newspaper articles, legal documents and rapports from the national council of crime prevention and the prosecution authority. The theorists used in this thesis are Karsten Åström, Michael Lipsky and Peter Dellgran. The result of this thesis shows that there are flaws in the current legislation and that the perceptions presented in this study can have an impact on the future improvements of the contact prohibition Act.
