   The Swedish government will spend 2.2 billion Kronor (£187.3 million) per year to combat “segregation” in some of the country’s most “vulnerable” areas.
    The plan is the first of its kind and will see large amounts of cash pumped into suburbs and areas across the country which suffer from high rates of crime, high unemployment, and other socio-economic factors, according to a press release put out by the government on Tuesday.
   “The strategy aims at reducing the gap in society in the long run and creating a safe Sweden that stays together,” the government release said and added five main areas the money will go towards improving: housing, education, the labour market, democracy and civil society, and crime.
