EMN Annual Report on Migration and Asylum - Sweden


The European Migration Network’s (EMN) 2019 annual report for Sweden includes a chapter summarising the year’s most important developments in the field of migrant integration. These developments include, among other issues, the following:


  • an additional state grant for supporting measures for the municipalities that organise vocational education in combination with language training;
  • a state grant to the National Delegation for Validation to support the development of validation models;
  • measures making it possible for the Swedish Council for Higher Education to validate an individual’s completed but insufficiently documented foreign qualification, through a competence assessment performed by a higher education institution;
  • funding to increase the length of the civic orientation course from 60 to 100 hours;
  • the introduction of an intensive introductory year for newly arrived immigrants, consisting of a chain of language courses and vocational-oriented measures given in parallel or consecutively in a relatively short period of time.
