"Nelson Mandela was a person who changed the world. He was deeply convinced of the equality between human beings and had an equally strong commitment and capacity for reconciliation. He chose reconciliation where others would have chosen revenge.
He created a new South Africa and gave people all over the world someone to look up to and a role model."

The most important issue for Sweden is jobs. Many young people today have difficulty entering the labour market, both in Sweden and in the rest of Europe. The Government is therefore focusing on more and broader paths to jobs for young people in order to bring about a smoother transition from school to work. Overall experience shows that a combination of work, training and coaching is a good way for young people to enter the labour market.
