In collaboration with ACCORD, FBA presents a new series of research briefs highlighting different aspects of mediation.
Secondments to peace operationsFBA seconds civilian personnel to international peace operations that Sweden contributes to. FBA only deploys personnel of Swedish nationality. Secondments are an important part of FBA’s work for peace, security and development.
FBA is tasked by the Swedish government to second civilian Swedish personnel to peace operations led by the EU, UN and OSCE, and to the head quarters of those organizations, from where the peace operations are being planned and managed.
The map above shows where we currently have deployed staff.
The Swedish government has also decided that FBA is to deploy staff working within our areas of expertise.
The Swedish Police Authority, the Swedish Prosecution Authority, the Swedish National Courts Administration, the Swedish Prison and Probation Service and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency also contribute with civilian Swedish personnel, working within other areas.
FBA coordinates all the Swedish authorities’ deployments of civilian personnel to international peace operations. Find out more about our latest summary of Sweden’s total civilian contribution to peace operations.
In addition, Sweden contributes with military personnel to international peace operations, through the Swedish Armed Forces.
All Swedes on secondment to international peace operations, both military and civilian staff, are representatives of Sweden abroad and part of Sweden’s efforts for international peace, security and development.
