A new law will be applied on March 1st that will force municipalities in Sweden to receive refugees who get residence permits, and who are going to be distributed evenly over all Swedish cities and municipalities.

It would not be possible for the municipality after that to claim non-availability of housing to refuse receiving refugees, each municipality must provide the necessary housing.

Stockholm Municipality has begun the construction of new housings for refugees in “FARSTA”, and has plans to build 1500 homes this year, and the number will reach up to 4000 in the coming years.

Municipalities may resort to build prefabricated housings to solve this crisis.

This new law constitutes a major burden on the municipalities, for example, Stockholm Municipality must provide housing for about 2810 people this year, compared to 93 people in the last year, these figures do not include refugee children below 18 years of age, Stockholm must provide housing and care for 3050 minors this year alone.
