Sweden

Sweden has no organised far-right parties, but in recent years the country has seen a wave of neo-Nazi violence - including murders and bombings which have targeted immigrants. Many Swedes have found it difficult to come to terms with the existence of racist violence in a country which prides itself on its egalitarian social democracy.

Some suspects have been arrested and charged, but there remains an organised underground of white supremacist youth who conduct such attacks, as well as posting violent neo-Nazi material on the internet, and communicating with similar organisations in the US and Britain.

Immigrants account for about one million of Sweden's population of nearly 10 million, but the number is growing.
