Parental leave in Sweden

Sweden offers one of the best parental leave ("föräldraledighet") policies in the world. Parents are granted a total of 480 days of leave per child, with 180 additional days given for twins.

Skåne, in the southernmost part of Sweden with its vibrant, innovation-based economy and booming start-up scene, is a regional champion and national showcase.
