The Swedish government is now preparing a law that will force all Swedish municipalities, against their will, to provide public housing for newly arrived refugees.
Well into the 20th century, Sweden was a homogeneous country, where there were hardly any immigrants. Today, given Sweden’s liberal immigration policy, and the rapid and radical demographic developments taking place, Sweden’s third largest city, Malmö, is on the way to becoming a city where ethnic Swedes are in minority. Its immigrant population has gone from 27 percent in 1996, to 42% in December 2012.
There are difficulties for immigrants in Sweden, as everywhere, especially in education and the labor market.
What is missing, however, are other views.
