Sweden tops countries that help with integration

Sweden is better than other European countries, the United States, and Canada in helping immigrants integrate, according to a study published by the British Council and the Migration Policy Group.

Sweden’s score of 83 gave it the highest rank among countries included in the study. Portugal ranked second with a score of 79, followed by Canada (72).

Neighbouring Finland claimed the number 4 spot (69), with Norway coming in seventh (66) and Denmark trailing its Scandinavian neighbors in 14th place (53).

According to the index, derived from an analysis of 148 different factors, Swedish integration policies offer favorable conditions for migrants to participate in society, including finding employment.

Interestingly another study recently found that while Swedes feel more safe than they have in years, more immigrants feel less safe than they have in the past.
