UN Women National Committee Sweden

The Swedish National Committee for UN Women is one of 18 national committees for UN Women. The Swedish National Committee was founded in 1986 as a non-profit organisation and has in recent years expanded its activities.

National committees for UN Women work to promote UN Women's work for women’s rights and focus on three main areas:

  • information/education
  • advocacy/lobbying
  • fundraising

The Swedish National Committee works to raise awareness in Sweden within the following fields:

  • about CEDAW through information campaigns, capacity building, conferences, and partnerships
  • about violence against women/trafficking through information campaigns, capacity building, conferences, and partnerships with mainly labour unions
  • about UN Women's work, women’s rights at information events such as The International Women’s Day, March 8; the UN Day on October 24; and the UN Day about Violence against Women on November 25.
