However, there is an obvious drop in the number of refugees coming to Sweden in the period of 2016-2017, there is still much to be done. The main issue is associated with the labour integration of those who have already found their way to Sweden at the peak of migration crisis in 2015.Swedish migration policy as a number of weaknesses worthy of criticism in terms of refugees coming to Sweden within the recent years: lack of housing, integration policy and educational issues.
