I can see you - but can you see me?. Life as a new arrival in one of Sweden's refugee reception centres

Inside Sweden

It’s a facet of life in Sweden that many Swedes won’t ever experience. Inside Sweden meets a journalist who wanted to change all that - and spent a year in a one of this country’s refugee reception centres - and wrote a book about her experiences.

One senior citizen dropped off a sawn-off shotgun and one couple were relieved to get rid of a weapon they’d been hiding for decades. Sounds more like the wild west than Scandinavia - but it’s just one story from the three-month weapons amnesty that ended yesterday.

Also, a disturbing report this week uncovers violence against disabled women - and it’s often carried out by their caregivers.
