  "description": "<p>From a comparative European perspective, Sweden is generally known as a country pursuing&nbsp;relatively liberal asylum policies. One distinguishing feature of Swedish immigration policy has&nbsp;been the principle that persons who are given asylum are immediately granted permanent&nbsp;residence (although the law allows exemptions from this under certain circumstances).</p>\n\n<p>This report gives an overview of the Swedish legal and policy framework of border&nbsp;management and migration control &ndash; how it relates to EU regulations and policies; what key&nbsp;actors are involved in the implementation and what the key issues and challenges are in&nbsp;relation to this field.</p>",
