Refugees are vulnerable to be marginalized in society, which may affect their human rights, including rights in health, education, politics, society, and economy. Sweden, as one of the EU countries that experienced a refugee crisis, has received more than 280.000 asylum applications since 2014 and granted protection to 69.350 people last year. In this lecture, Fredrik Mattsson, an asylum case office at the Swedish Migration board, will tell us about the asylum and integration processes and how the Swedish authorities work to facilitate integration and development for newly arrived immigrants.
