About us

Swedes Worldwide is an independent, non-profit organisation founded in 1938. We hold the unique role as the representative of approx. 700 000 Swedes who study, work or for other reasons live abroad. 

We serve as their voice in Sweden. Within that scope, we monitor their interests and issues, such as the citizenship, passport, taxation, voting, and pensions etc, and conduct advocacy and lobbying through contacts with parliamentary parties, authorities, organisations, media, and other influencers.  

We also act as a consultative body on all matters concerning Swedes living abroad. Therefore, we have the responsibility to ensure that their needs and rights are safeguarded in various referrals.  

Additionally, we give advice and support our members and partners. We do that in collaboration with our representatives living worldwide, and experienced experts within the fields of interests of our members and partners.
