    Over 3,000 relocated asylum seekers from Greece and Italy are in place in Sweden

    Sweden has now fulfilled its commitment to the EU’s decision of 2015 that member states should take asylum seekers from Greece and Italy. 3,045 people have arrived here from the middle of June 2017 to the beginning of January 2018.
