Swedish Govt Gave Millions to Groups That Could Claim 51%+ Migrant Background Members in 2020

by A.P.

The Swedish Agency for Youth and Civil Society (MUCF) paid out millions of Swedish kronor to ethnic associations last year.

MUCF paid out almost 19 million Swedish kronor (£1.7 million /$2.3 million) to 47 different ethnic minority associations during 2020. While the agency claims that 51 per cent of the members must be of foreign background, Statistics Sweden has previously announced it is illegal to keep such ethnic data.

According to a report from Nyheter Idag, the groups must also have at least 1,000 active paying members, have at least five local associations, be operational in at least three counties, and the members partially pay for their own activities.

The Bosnian-Herzegovinian National Association of Sweden based in Norrkoping received the largest grant of 862,753 kronor, followed by the Serbian National Association of Sweden, and the Kurdish Federation of Sweden.
