Beyond Asylum - Labor Market Integration Challenges in Sweden

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article takes stock of recent changes to Sweden’s immigration policy and draws upon statistical data to show the effect of the new immigration regime. It discusses the structural economic challenge of integrating immigrants who lack education and job training, and offers Sweden as a reference (or perhaps cautionary tale) for other coun- tries seeking to change their immigration policies. This work also takes into account the presence of other supranational immigration regimes.
