This study agrees with previous research on the welfare magnetism for immigrants in generous welfare states compared to those with less generous welfare provisions. This study does not stop at just agreeing with the positive previous research of welfare magnetism, this thesis` focus is to present other important factors when dealing with forced immigrants movement choice. In this study case;asylum seekers, not only generous welfare benefits of a country attract forced immigrants, but a combination of immigration policies, networks(social media)and generous welfare provisions attract forced immigrants to a particular country
compared to another. This thesis conducted the study by comparing Sweden and Denmark which fall under the same welfare model(Social-democratic) by using secondary sources; mostly recent newspaper articles and government publication statistics. The study concluded that most asylum seekers prefered applying to Sweden compared to Denmark due to their network information, more generous welfare provisions and more welcoming immigration policies in Sweden comparedto Denmark. Despite the fact that, both these countries offer generous welfare provisions compared to other countries in the other two welfare models. (Less)
