Globalisation has reduced poverty in the world – but it has also increased inequality. Consequently, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is now strengthening its efforts to ensure fairer globalisation.

May 12-13, experts, organisations and decision-makers from around the world are gathering in Stockholm. On the agenda is one of the greatest challenges facing the international community: the number of wars and conflicts in the world is once again on the rise after years of a downward trend. To reverse this trend, it is essential that both donors and conflict-affected countries are prepared to deal with the root causes of conflicts. Sweden will therefore take on a leading role internationally, and systematically conduct conflict analysis of all the countries receiving Swedish aid.
