This report is one of 12 national reports in the VIRES project, (Vulnerable workers in Restructuring), a project funded by the European Commission, DG Employment, Social affairs and Inclusion. The aim of the project is to analyze the impact of restructuring for vulnerable workers, in particular young and foreign-born workers. Each national report identifies the impact of restructuring on vulnerable workers and the potential for different policy measures to mitigate the effects of restructuring. The financial crisis in 2008–2009 had a dramatic impact in Sweden. In October 2008 the number of announcements of redundancies increased to a level not seen since the financial crisis in 1992-1993 and continued at a high level until March 2009 when it started to decline. In this report we analyze the relationship between restructuring and the outcomes in the labor market, in particular for the most vulnerable groups. A number of questions are asked: • Who are the vulnerable workers in times of restructuring? • What is the relationship between restructuring and vulnerable workers? • What is the role of the different measures applied to manage restructuring for vulnerable workers? • What measures and policies are implemented to mitigate the negative consequences for the particular vulnerable groups?
