Welcome to the Swedish Mission in Geneva!

The Swedish Mission in Geneva represents Sweden in the United Nations and other International Organizations present in Geneva. In this work we pursue a wide range of Sweden's international objectives including promoting development and respect for human rights, disarmament, protecting health and the environment, negotiating freer and fairer global trade, and ensuring speedy and effective responses to humanitarian disasters.
