    To celebrate 100 years of Swedish democracy, the Government proposes that SEK 25 million a year be allocated during 2020 and 2021 so that government agencies, municipalities and civil society organisations can implement special measures to strengthen democracy. “More people should feel involved, knowledge about democracy must be increased and we need to safeguard the democratic dialogue. The democracy we inherited from earlier generations must be even stronger when we pass it on to our children,” says Minister for Culture and Democracy Amanda Lind.

    In the Budget Bill for 2020, the Government, together with the Liberal Party and Centre Party, puts forward several proposals to strengthen democracy, culture and sports throughout Sweden. Here you can learn more about some of the proposals within the Ministry of Culture’s budget areas.
