Swedish Bilateral Assistance in the Field of Migration and Asylum in Central and Eastern Europe, 1996-2002
Kjell-Åke Nordquist , Martin Schmidt
Swedish co-operation in the field of migration and asylum matters with Baltic and East European countries dates back to the middle of the 1990s. This study, commissioned by Sida, analyses the cooperation in the period 1996-2002 between Sweden and Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine with respect to the relevance, performance and possible future directions of this cooperation. A slight difference between regions was made in the mandate for the study, since the cooperation with the Baltic states has been wider and deeper then has been the case with the other three states.
