IFAU report: The long-term integration of refugee children


The children who came to Sweden as refugees in connection with the wars in the former Yugoslavia in the 1990s have been well integrated into the labor market, shows a new IFAU report written by UIL's scientific leader Olof Åslund, together with Linus Liljeberg and Sara Roman. 25 years after immigration, there are few differences compared to the native-born. At the same time, a clear segregation is visible in family formation and to some extent also in housing and the workplace.

The young refugees have been well integrated, both in terms of educational level and establishment in the labor market. Ten years after immigration, the group's employment rate corresponded to 90–95 percent of the employment among same-age native-born.
