The Olof Palme International Center works with international development co-operation and the forming of public opinion surrounding international political and security issues.
The Palme Center was established in 1992 by the Swedish Social Democratic Party, the Trade Union Confederation (LO) and the Cooperative Union (KF). Today the Palme Center has 28 member organizations within the labor movement.
The centre works in the spirit of the late Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, reflected by the famous quotation: “Politics wants something. Social Democratic politics wants change.”
Olof Palme’s conviction that common security is created by co-operation and solidarity across borders, permeates the centre’s activities.
