Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Sweden accepting of differences?

Answer this Question

When we asked people about diversity in Sweden and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...

"Yes, there is a lot of diversity in Sweden. People in Sweden are generally accepting of differences, and the country has a long history of welcoming immigrants and refugees. Sweden is also known for its progressive policies on gender equality, LGBT rights, and religious freedom," remarked another expat who made the move to Sweden.

"Uppsala is as liberal in attitudes as Stockholm regarding religion and cultural diversity. There are Jews, Christians and Muslims in varying populations, but there are also other religions (Eastern, Far Eastern, etc.). There is a liberal immigration policy, but may become more controlled in the future. Racism is fairly recent, but not overt. Middle Eastern, Eastern European, and African immigrants are subjects of racism," explained one expat living in Uppsala, Sweden.
