Currently, roughly 20% of Sweden’s population was born in another country, and the gap in employment numbers between natives and foreign-born is among the widest in Europe.
According to the study’s results, it takes an average of 12-13 years after their arrival before even 50% of migrants in Sweden have achieved basic self-sufficiency, amounting to 12,800 kronor per month after tax (approximately 1,200 euros). For the most part, migrants live on government funding.

However, internal documents tell another story: the faculty only provides the necessary funding for the position if a woman is to receive it.

“In a feminine culture, the average student is the norm and weak students are rewarded, in a masculine one the norm is the top student and excellence is rewarded. In feminine cultures, attempts to excel spark envy and aversion, while in masculine cultures excellence and competition are encouraged.
