Evaluating the new Swedish labour migration policy
Abstract:The Swedish labour migration policy seems to effectively meet labour market needs without adverse effects. Almost half of the labour migrants coming to Sweden went into occupations that were in shortage. Chief among these is the IT sector, which attracts a large number of shortterm labour migrants, including intra‐corporate transfers. Recruitment from abroad is only a small part of total hiring in Sweden, and does not closely correspond to total job openings.
