English summary of Brå report 2015:3
The number of applications for restraining orders
in Sweden has not changed appreciably between 2010 and 2013.
The purpose of the 2011 amendment to the Restraining Order Ac was to “strengthen the order’s crime prevention effect and improve the protection the order is intended to provide.” On the basis of this study, the National Council has found that the application of the Act has remained largely unchanged subsequent to 2011. The aims of the reform do not appear to have been achieved.
