  • The Migration Agency has changed how it grants asylum seekers the right to work in Sweden after a recruitment agency in Ukraine was found exploiting the system last year.

  • That agency promised people, who paid a fee, jobs and housing here. But there was no work. Instead, clients had to seek asylum.

  • The Migration Agency carried out its own review, which criticized its handling, and has changed its routines since the summer.
