Sweden’s migration policy

Today, Swedish ‘migration policy’ covers refugee and immigration policy, repatriation, support for repatriation and the link between migration and development. While dealing with these issues, Sweden has cooperation with EU and international authorities such as UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). Despite the existence of meagre critics, it can be argued that from 80s till today the Swedish migration politics has been relatively generous or less restrictive. Such an ambitious argument can be supported by the evidence of the study of Timothy and Williamson that between 1982-2001, Sweden was the top second country in terms of accepted asylum seekers per capita among twenty European and North American countries. Further evidence for the generosity of Swedish migration policy can be found on the web side of Migrant Integration Policy Index.
