Pakkoavioliiton kriminalisointi SuomessaOlsson, Nanni
Helsinki Law Review 2019/1 s. 92–121
This article evaluates the legislative measures made by the Finnish
legislator in order to implement the Istanbul Convention, the potential need to criminalise forced marriage as a specific offence and the need for the crime to be subject to public prosecution. At the time of writing, forcing a person to enter into a marriage can be prosecuted as trafficking
in human beings or as coercion. This article aims to show that these measures are insufficient. The findings indicate that criminalisation of forced marriage as a specific offence would be justified taking into account the principle of legality as well as Finland’s treaty obligations and duties to protect and to fulfil human rights.
