"In Sweden, the Integration of Migrants is Key"
In this radio interview with Radio Schweden, Timo Lochocki, a transatlantic fellow on the Migration and Society Program discusses how Sweden is seen as a role model for the integration of migrants in Western Europe.
However, in recent years, various challenges have put the liberal Swedish model under stress. Amongst other problems, Sweden is struggling with the integration of refugees in the labour market. In contrast, labour market integration of migrants works unexpectedly well in Germany - and this not only since the uptake of the German economy in recent years. This interview highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the Swedish and German models of immigration and integration, and it outlines what each immigration policy can learn from each other and discusses future challenges.
