There are approximately 40,000 Somali-born immigrants living in Sweden, as well as over 17,000 people born in the country with at least one parent born in Somalia. Malmo – Sweden’s third largest city – is seen as the frontier town for immigration, as it’s the gateway from Denmark via the Øresund Bridge.  43% of the town’s population has a foreign background. Most Somalis arrived as asylum seekers and through family reunification services in the 1990s and the 2000s.
