Parental leave and childcare in focus during Polish visit
Minister for Gender Equality Maria Arnholm today received Poland's gender equality minister Agnieszka Kozlowska-Rajewicz. Ms Kozlowska-Rajewicz is here to study how parental leave and childcare are designed in Sweden, and what the Government is doing about men's violence against women. The two ministers will also pay a visit to the National Police Board to learn about the work of the police, and in particular the campaign against crime in close relationships being conducted by the police.
Swedish language education for immigrants is not as good as it should be. The Government has therefore decided to expand the remit of the 'Sfi Voucher Inquiry' (Sfi-pengsutredningen). The aim is to reform Swedish language education for immigrants from the ground up.
On Thursday 11 October the Government put forward a bill to the Riksdag entitled Research and Innovation. The bill contains investments raising the level of appropriations for 2013-2016 by SEK 4 billion.
