There are five national minorities with five minority languages in Sweden:
- Jews and Yiddish
- Roma and Romani (all varieties)
- Sami people and Sami
- Swedish Finns and Finnish
- Tornedalians and Meänkieli
These groups have lived in Sweden for a long time and are thus a part of the Swedish cultural legacy. The minority policy aims to strengthen the national minorities and provide the required support in order to keep the languages vivid. The Malmö model is a concretization of the center's work at different levels. The model is important for establishing trust, credibility, stability and continuity, as well as ensuring that anti-discriminatory practice is carried out on both an individual and structural level.
