Previously -

The Danish experience and the Swedish model :

'Today I learned about the 'Swedish model' - whereby those with non-EEA spouses or family members would live in Malmo, Sweden, and commute, at regular intervals, across the bridge to Copenhagen, Denmark, as a way to exercise EU rights. A situation where those affected would form lasting friendships sharing the commute across the 'bridge of love' between the two countries. Where districts of Copenhagen are full of cars with Swedish numberplates.'

Family Migration – don't fall into the Danish trap :

'An ongoing UK Government consultation on immigration policy makes an exemplar of the Danish system. But is Denmark's immigration policy really something to aspire to?'
