Summary, in English

The Asylum Commission has been formed by researchers and people with extensive knowledge of migration and asylum seekers’ living conditions in Sweden, with the aim of initiating enquiries based on asylum seekers’ lived experiences and perspec-tives.

The background to the Commission is recurring reports of a difficult situation among children, adolescents and adult asylum seekers, such as unpredictable and inhumane decisions, increasing homelessness, social exclusion, mental illness, broken families and more violent deportations. Despite testimony on deficiencies in rule of law-prin-ciples, the changes are defended by the government and those responsible in munici-palities and authorities. At the same time, some municipalities and civil society have worked to counteract the destructive effects.
