International coordination

There is widespread international interest in Swedish gender equality policy and Swedish gender equality work. Dissemination of knowledge and experiences is an important responsibility of the Agency, along with participation in international collaborations and follow-ups on behalf of the government.

Exchange of knowledge and experience

The Agency will support the government in the international cooperation, including in the exchange of knowledge and experience. There is a growing demand for Swedish cooperation with other countries and international organisations, both as a driver of progress and as a contributor of knowledge about gender equality work at the international level.

The international gender equality work is carried out within the frameworks of the United Nations, the European Union, the Council of Europe and the Nordic Council of Ministers. The Agency may assist the government in a large number of contexts, including in the drafting, promotion and negotiation of Swedish standpoints.
