Exploring Models For a Swedish NHRI


In January 2015, the Human Rights Council of the UN recommended that Sweden established an independent national human rights institution. The Swedish government accepted this recommendation and announced that it would initiate the work of establishing such an institution. As a response to the announcement, various human rights organizations in Sweden formed a network in order to discuss what a Swedish NHRI could look like.

In June 2016, members of this network were invited to the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in Lund to take part in a roundtable discussion on the future role and institutional set-up of a Swedish NHRI.

A report summarizing this discussion is now available online.
