Swedish migration agency was advised ‘to do away’ with LGBT experts


The migration agency was offered to fire the experts of LGBT issues. The Local reports that the agency has been the subject of an internal report, which advises that specialists on LGBT issues be disbanded. The recommendation by the report comes as it says the agency has lost specific expertise at its asylum centres. On the back of that, it suggests that new, more general roles are created for some of the more longer-standing staff members. It was offered to get rid of experts responsible for LGBT and other specific issues.

Swedish biggest pro-LGBT group has already expressed its disagreement: Magnus Kolsjö, vice-chairman at RFSL said: “All staff at the Migration Agency need basic training when it comes to LGBT-related issues. The experts specialised in LGBT must be educated more and their roles must be developed, not abolished.”
