Sweden has been a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council 2017-18. During its tenure, Sweden established itself as a credible and relevant member of the Council. The point of departure for the Swedish membership was a ‘bedrock’ of international law, human rights, gender equality and a humanitarian perspective. As a member, Sweden strived to be attentive, creative and result oriented.
The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs is inviting the diplomatic community in Stockholm to share their experiences on these topics and more.
The speakers during the seminar are:
Mr. Efraim Gomez, Deputy Director-General, Head of UN Policy Department
Mr. Tomas Wiklund, Deputy Director, Head of Section for Coordination of Sweden’s Membership in the Security Council
