    Default Sweden tops European rape league

    Sweden has the highest incidence of reported rapes in Europe - twice as many as "runner up" the UK, a new study shows.


    Researchers behind the EU study, ..conclude that rape appears to be a more common occurrence in Sweden than in continental European countries.

    ..46 incidents of rape are reported per 100,000 residents.

    ..double as many as in the UK which reports 23 cases, ..four times that of the other Nordic countries, Germany and France. ..20 times the figure for certain countries in southern and eastern Europe.

    ..The high incidence of rape in Sweden has a strong connection to nightlife and partying, specifically after-club parties in private homes.

    Early sexual debuts, high alcohol consumption, "free sexuality" and the "right to say no" quite simply results in more rapes, the study concludes.

    I wonder was it always like this, or has anything changed recently?

    Perhaps in Sweden (a more progressive country) more rape may not happen but more is REPORTED.

    from the article, and presumably in the report
    The high figures in Sweden can not it seems be explained purely by an increased tendency to report rapes and other more minor sexual offences.

    Its surprising beacuse in other ways such as % women in parliament and so on, Sweden is a country where womens rights are respected.

    A couple of my friends studied in sweeden and found the night life to be strict. One of them even got arrested and passport confiscated because they thought she had ten drugs- really shes just from Cork!

    If that was your anwer wouldn't poland have higher rape than Sweden. Or wouldn't Britain and Ireland have higher rates?

    Really?

    May I remind you of the couple`s who were dragged from their cars by Eastern Europeans? Beaten, Raped.

    Perhaps you could explain what else has changed in Sweden apart from being a magnet for eastern europeans?

    If you increase a population, you will increase the Crime.
