Migrants feel more at home in Sweden

4:25 min

The majority of non-European migrants feel safer in Sweden than they do back home, according to a unique study on integration in which over 6,000 migrants took part.

The Institute for Future Studies put questions to 6,500 non-European migrants for an insight into how people with different cultures and religions view Sweden and its norms and values.

"One feels safe in Sweden, one feels a sense of belonging in Sweden. The image we see in the media is about parallel societies and shootings. What we see is a completely different picture,"  lead researcher Bi Puranen tells Radio Sweden.
