Threats and violence against elected politicians

The Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) focuses on strengthening the ability of local elected politicians to carry out their democratic mandate. It’s important to enable them to continue to play their vital role in Swedish local democracy, even during periods of uncertainty and change.

SALAR’s work in this area started in 2016, and is funded by central government. The work aims to support local municipalities and regions to develop systematic structures and approaches to prevent and confront threats and other crimes directed against local politicians.
