It is the seventh part of the series, Sweden's future migration policy – regarding the Migration Committee, that can be viewed on Fores' Youtube channel. The purpose of the webinar was to assist the Migration committee with research results as a basis for future migration policy decisions.
The moderator, Therese Lindström, begun the conversation by expressing how return is a priority issue within the government and important for a sustainable migration system. Henrik Malm Lindberg then discussed the three identified goals of return policy; efficiency, humanity and legal certainty. He pointed out that there are goals that are established within migration policy that do not have to do with return, but which nevertheless influence return policy and create conflicting objectives. "Policy must continue to be consistent and able to prioritize return issues" is his message to the Migration committee. *The webinar was held in Swedish.
