In 2016, we opened up a new office in Stockholm to build our presence in Sweden’s capital city.
Through our office in Stockholm, we aim to establish RWI as a go-to organisation in Sweden for knowledge and policy input within our thematic priority areas Fair and Efficient Justice, Economic Globalisation and Human Rights, People on the Move, and Inclusive Societies. RWI’s Stockholm office hosts regular human rights talks and roundtables with key Swedish actors and organisations throughout the year.
