Quota refugees are selected by the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, to move to another country. They are deemed to have a particuarly pressing need of protection.
Sweden is expected to receive a total 5,000 quota refugees in 2018. That's a number that the centre-left government has agreed on with the centre-right opposition.
Up until now, the Sweden Democrats have been in favour of Sweden taking in a limited number of quota refugees. But now, as part of its election manifesto, the party says it wants to put a complete stop to this, until the refugee reception and the situation for migrants in Sweden is "under control", according to the Sweden Democrat spokesperson on migration, Paula Bieler.
