This year, Almedalen week starts 1st July to 8th of July 2018 and celebrates it´s 50th anniversary.
Almedalen week is an exceptional political event that takes place every year in Almedalen (a park in the city of Visby on the Swedish island Gotland). This gathering is characterized with the informal atmosphere, intimacy, discussion, democracy, seminars and further education and training.
It is considered to be the most important political forum in Sweden's politics, where political parties, activists, organizations and many entities take turn to express their visions, strategies and perspectives through speeches, seminars, round tables and other activities.
Swedish Institute Alexandria is present every year in Almedalen since 2010, where we bring many experts from the MENA region to share their views and exchange their experiences with Swedish politicians.
