The study analyses in general terms the Swedish asylum policy. It analyses both the asylum law and the work of the executive authority.

The analyse also includes a brief look at two asylum cases. These cases are examples where the process hasn´t been executed in an ethical manner. A crucial term for the study is human rights, this is along side Delantys cosmopolitism the cornerstones of the line of reason.

The conclusion of this essay is that the premises given aren´t all forfilled by the swedish asylum policy. The study shows that it has several flaws and that a change in the policy is needed. (Less)
