About us

The nonviolence is the connecting piece in all of our work

The Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation (SweFOR), is a Swedish civil society organization, with an ecumenical character, founded in 1919 and a member of the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR), which has consultative status in the UN.

Our vision is:

“Peace and justice, a society without violence and a sustainable way of living”

The work of SweFOR looks to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence in the world, promoting the pacific management of conflicts and respect for human rights and international humanitarian law. We consider that these axes are fundamental for the construction of a sustainable peace.
