Top-down post-migration policy making in Finland and Sweden has failed to achieve its objectives and newcomers have not benefitted from the very programs and policies implemented to address their needs through social integration. The article traces the historical developments of Finnish and Swedish integration laws and shows that although immigration history in the two Nordic nations had different beginnings, recent integration laws have much in common. In both countries the new laws are inspired by the shift in social policy to activation, though in different ways. Finland’s post-migration policies shifted from ambivalent beginnings to the more ‘ambitious effort to expand and accelerate integration processes ...’. In Sweden, integration policy developments have focused incrementally on more effective ways of locating newcomers into paid labour with some emphasis on language facility.
