The Ethics Council

The Swedish Migration Agency has an Ethical Council appointed by the government. The function of this council is advisory, and the director general should be able to retrieve a statement from the council in ethical matters.

The Swedish Migration Agency instructions say that:

The Swedish Migration Agency must have an Ethical Council. This council will, at the request of the authority, provide statements on issues with regard to the development of the Agency's activities, which may require ethical considerations. The council will consist of no more than seven members. The government appoints the chair and other members of the council for a fixed period of time.
