The Swedish government has launched an international information campaign to convey the message of a “paradigm shift” in its immigration policy. The aim is to discourage more immigrants from coming to the Nordic country. Among other things, the campaign includes information packs for foreign authorities and targeted communication to foreign media, news agencies and embassies. The Immigration Minister pointed out that currently two-thirds of asylum seekers coming to Europe lack grounds for protection. According to her, informing these people in advance of the regulations that apply will reduce their suffering, if they are finally forced to return. The leader of the parliamentary group of the Swedish Democrats, Henrik Vinge, stressed that it was that Sweden’s once extremely generous asylum policy is no longer equally generous. The government also pointed out that during its first 100 days in office, it has put in place a series of measures to deal with migration issues. Among other things, internal checks on foreigners have been extended and the fight against illegal immigration has been stepped up. The government has also emphasized “voluntary repatriation”. This is a marked change from the much more lavish immigration policy of the moderates, pursued during their previous term in office under then Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, who aspired to make Sweden a “humanitarian superpower” and even called on his countrymen to “open their hearts” and embrace mass immigration. This is often attributed to the influence of the national-conservative Swedish Democrats, who weigh heavily on the government’s agenda despite the absence of ministerial posts. Previously ostracized by the entire Swedish political establishment, Sweden’s Democrats have long been the only party pushing for limited immigration, earning epithets from “racist” to “sectarian” from the country’s left-wing press. However, in 2022 they had their best performance ever, becoming the country’s second-largest party and becoming a key ally of the otherwise fragile moderate-led minority government. A milestone in Sweden’s approach to immigration came several years ago, when former Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, after years of arduous denial, finally admitted the role of poor integration of newcomers to the skyrocketing crime and intense violence that has swept through the once peaceful nation. As gang shootings began to dominate the news cycle, even leftist and pro-immigration social democrats changed their rhetoric. and “no go zones” become openly discussed. Kristersson himself has come forward on the platform of “turning Sweden around”, pledging to tackle immigrant-related crime and violence.

Amid immigration problems ranging from urban desolation to violent crime, the moderates shifted their agenda from turning Sweden into a “humanitarian superpower” to “turning Sweden around” within a decade.

The Swedish government has launched an international information campaign to convey the message of a “paradigm shift” in its immigration policy. The aim is to discourage more immigrants from coming to the Nordic country.

“It’s about giving an accurate account of what Sweden’s migration policy looks and will look like,” Immigration Minister Maria Malmer Stenergard of the Moderate Party told a news conference. According to her, this will reduce the number of asylum applications in Sweden.

Among other things, the campaign includes information packs for foreign authorities and the provision of targeted communication to foreign media, news agencies and embassies.

The Immigration Minister pointed out that currently two-thirds of asylum seekers coming to Europe do not have protection reasons. Informing these people of the regulations that apply in advance, she says, will reduce their suffering, if they are eventually forced to return.

The leader of the Swedish Democrats’ parliamentary group, Henrik Vinge, stressed that it was important to inform that Sweden’s once extremely generous asylum policy is is no longer so generous.

The government also pointed out that during its first 100 days in office, it implemented a series of measures to address migration issues. Among other things, internal checks on foreigners have been extended and the fight against illegal immigration has been stepped up. The government also underlined its enduring focus on “voluntary repatriation”.

This is a marked change from the much more lavish immigration policy of the moderates, pursued during their previous term in office under then Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt, who aspired to make Sweden a “humanitarian superpower” and even called on its compatriots to “open their hearts” and embrace mass immigration.

Swedes will soon be a minority in their own country, politician warns

This is often attributed to the influence of the national-conservative Swedish Democrats, who weigh heavily on the government’s agenda despite the absence of ministerial posts. Previously ostracized by the entire Swedish political establishment, Sweden’s Democrats have long been the only party pushing for limited immigration, earning epithets from “racist” to “sectarian” from the country’s left-wing press.

As gang shootings began to dominate the news cycle, even leftist and pro-immigration social democrats changed their rhetoric.
Unsurprisingly perhaps, immigration-related crime has become the focal point of the 2022 election, with once-avoided concepts like “parallel societies” and “no-go zones” becoming openly discussed. Kristersson himself ran on the platform of “turning Sweden around”, pledging to tackle immigrant-related crime and violence.
