Democracy and governance

Share Swedish experiences and perspectives to support sustainable development. We offer toolkits that help you raise important topics on democracy and governance to inspire others and create platforms for dialouge. Many of the toolkits contain examples from the Swedish social model. Let's work together to build a sustainable future.

What's our story?

Sweden has a long history of democratic governance that has shaped the Swedish society of today. It is approximately 100 years since women and men in Sweden were granted universal and equal suffrage, but the path to democracy started long before that. Openness and transparency are vital parts of Swedish democracy. Everyone has the same rights and is free to scrutinise how politicians and public agencies exercise their power. Our social model, with a universal welfare system and strong institutions, inspires interest around the world.

What's our aim?

Our mission is to share Swedish experiences to contribute to a democratic and sustainable development globally.

Who is our audience?

We want to reach a wide variety of target groups who have an interest in Sweden and Swedish society, ranging from young adults, to decision-makers.

What do we want our target groups to do?

We want to open a dialogue on topics related to democracy and governance. We also want to increase trust and collaboration in international contexts.

What do we offer?

A transparent and accountable governance has been a vital part of the development of Swedish society. By sharing our experiences we hope to inspire others and contribute to global sustainable development.
