This report gives a short overview of integration policies in Sweden, four EU countries (France, Germany, Portugal and the UK) and three transoceanic countries (Australia, Canada and the US) with a focus on mainstreaming, equal treatment and targeted measures. Firstly, the key concepts are introduced. Secondly, national models and immigrant populations in these countries are considered. Thirdly, reasoning about the balance between mainstreaming and targeted measures in EU documents is investigated, Fourthly, rankings of the seven countries according to MIPEX, Multiculturalism Policy Index and actual labour market outcomes are made. Fifthly, an overview of integration policies in the seven countries is presented. Sixthly, the balance between mainstreaming and targeted measures in Sweden is discussed and some arguments are raised: that the Swedish "universal" welfare state model is rather an ethnic model where there is a risk of equal treatment being confused with similar treatment and that the border line between mainstreaming and targeted measures is rather inflexible in the Swedish setting compared to the reasoning in EU documents.
