The aim of this paper is to find out how the segregation appears in Sweden today and how it arises. We also want to find out in what way the integration policy contributes to the segregation. Eventually we want to see if segregation really is as problematic as it is often portrayed. To achieve the aim of this study, we have made a secondary analysis of a report and literature that are suited to our work. We have selected four neighborhoods in the swedish city Västerås that we believe fits within the term segregation. What we found out is that the four neighborhoods have the highest percent of a low income, high unemployment and children living in poverty. The problem of segregation is what characterizes it. We could see a pattern that there are many people with a foreign background who lives in those neighborhoods and it is a result of the integrations policy. Including the EBO-law that lets the refugees choose where they want to live. In many cases do they choose to live where they can afford and close to their family and friends, and they tend to stay there. We think that it has been very interesting to find out what various political scientists say about the different integrations policy models. They are not completely satisfied with any of the integration models. Social mixing is negative because that it leads to a big difference between the people in the area, it will be a huge contrast between the wealthy and those who is not. Multiculturalism can lead to dissatisfaction among the dominant population and assimilation do not allow people to express their cultural features in public.
