National strategy against violent extremism and terrorism – prevent, avert, protect and manage Government Communication 2023/24:56


The Government has prepared a new comprehensive national strategy against violent extremism and terrorism and, in the budget, has prioritised measures that reinforce national security in order to provide a long-term focus for efforts in Sweden locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.


The strategy is divided into four areas: Prevent, Avert, Protect and Manage. These areas encompass the actors in society that are engaging to avert crime linked to violent extremism and terrorism and, if such crimes are nevertheless committed, to enable managing their consequences. It is difficult to protect society against all threats, but through all relevant actors in society having a clear role in this work, conditions are created for successful efforts to reduce the threats against Sweden and Swedish interests abroad.
