Paper by Veronica Riniolo

Sweden is currently undergoing crucial changes, such as the growing support for its populist and far-right party (Sweden Democrats), the diffusion of ‘welfare chauvinism’, according to which some categories of citizens are not entitled to receive support from the state, the big reform in 2010 regarding the introduction of newly arrived migrants, emblem of the Liberal Government, the riots of youth and migrants in May 2013, and the increasing arrival of refugees from Syria and from other areas characterised by instability, to name but a few.

Against the background of some of the literature that emphasises Sweden’s successful results in the field of migration and integration and other scholars who take a more critical approach to Sweden and its capacity of welcoming migrants, this paper examines in depth the way in which migrant integration actually takes place in everyday life.
