Sweden is a member of the UN Security Council this year.

Our foreign policy is firmly rooted in international law, human rights, gender equality and a humanitarian perspective.

The answers to the world’s big questions can be found in political solutions. This is why Sweden’s seat on the UN Security Council is so important. It gives us an opportunity to work for global solutions for peace, gender equality and human rights where they are needed most – but also where they are most difficult to achieve.

Sweden’s voice will continue to be heard in the Security Council right up to New Year’s Eve 2018. We will maintain our grand visions – but also remain a voice for progress in the small victories of cooperation.
