Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation (SweFOR) is a nonviolence movement working for peace and justice. Our aim is a world free from violence, whether it comes in the form of war, oppression or injustice.
One of our contributions is being a presence in areas of conflict. We support local peace actors in Colombia, Guatemala, Mexico, Western Sahara, Egypt, Sudan and South Sudan in their work to, through non-violent methods, strengthen human rights and build peace. Every year observers travel to countries of conflict to participate in the work for peace, democracy and human rights. They become part of a global network and are trained to report human rights abuses and to protect the people who are actively working for peace and justice. For more information about this work, see the menu on the right.
SweFOR also analyse security and defence policy in Sweden and are pushing for world leaders to sign up to forceful disarmament agreements and to prevent violent conflict. Together with our partners we raise awareness and campaign against the trade in and production of weapons. Training in non-violence, conflict and religious dialogue are regularly organised.
Another important task is to motivate the churches in Sweden to conduct active work for peace and renounce violence in all its forms.
SweFOR is a non-profit organization founded in Sweden in 1919. Today we are one of the largest peace movements in the country, with active members of all ages. Our head office is located in Stockholm and we also have employees in Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia.
