The Växjö Model/ The Kronobergs Model

The project’s overall strategy has focused on preventing alcohol abuse among youth and reducing their access to illegal alcohol. The project has had three objectives:

  1. To reduce violence and disorder on the streets (It became clear to the police at an early stage of the project that the majority of street violence was committed by intoxicated youths).
  2. To identify a number of actors that were illegally selling alcohol to youths and to secure convictions against these actors.
  3. To reduce alcohol consumption among young people.
