Visit Us at the Swedish Forum for Human Rights

Are you planning to attend the Swedish Forum for Human Rights this year? Civil Rights Defenders will be joining the forum in Stockholm on 16 November, organising two seminars. 

At our seminars, you will get the chance to learn more about ethnic/racial profiling in relation to the Swedish police’s efforts to combat crime. You will also get the opportunity to find out more about our ongoing work to strengthen Sámi indigenous rights. We will also have a book table where you are most welcome to speak to our staff and learn more about our work in Sweden and globally.


Our seminars:

Randomly Selected – on ethnic/racial profiling within Swedish Law Enforcement
