Sweden’s fiery immigration debate
Tino Sanandaji has proved a potent critic of Swedish policy
Tino Sanandaji, an Iranian-born economist in Sweden has become a potent critic of Sweden’s immigration policy. It is not the immigration per se that he objects to, but the country’s “inability to integrate large numbers of new arrivals. It’s a phenomenon, he argues, that’s turning the country into a class-based society, with non-native Swedes increasingly consigned to ethnic ghettos.”
Similar phenomenon can be seen wherever mass immigration policies of immigrants who face larger barriers than the traditional European immigrants of a previous generation.
Sanandaji’s reflections need to be taken seriously elsewhere. Immigration policies cannot simply be seen as a matter of entry, but of integration into the broader society. Some groups will find that a higher bar to mount than others, but without the means to do so, the sort of ghettos Sanandaji describes seem inevitable, which assist no one.
