Short presentation

During 2015 more than 160 000 where registered as asylum seeking refugees in Sweden, which is twice as many as in 2014. Historically, most of the refugees had been placed into urban areas. However, in 2015 small municipals received most refugees per capita. What does it mean, for small municipalities on the Swedish countryside when relatively high numbers of refugees are being placed there? And what is it like to be a refugee in a village on these places?
