European and worldwide co-operation

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions plays an active role in a number of different platforms and organisations on European and international level.

In the European Union Committee of the Regions, Sweden is represented by politicians elected to municipal, county council and regional assemblies. The Committee is an advisory body and an important political channel to influence decisions taken by the Commission, the European Parliament and the Council of Ministers. The Employer's organisation CEEP, as well as the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) are other important platforms for SALAR.

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions is also a member of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) and the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CLRAE) within the Council of Europe.
