About us

Who we are

Nordic Ukraine Forum is a non-profit non-governmental organization registered in Sweden. We are a Ukraine-Nordics initiative launched to build bridges between Sweden and Ukraine, as well as facilitate the spread of knowledge and insights. We help to spread the knowledge about Ukraine and the situation therein in Sweden, as well as share best practices of Sweden with Ukrainian civil society actors.

Such an activity is called to help expert and broader Nordic public be better informed about various developments in Ukraine and their implications for the broader international political, security, social-cultural, as well as business situation. At the same time, Ukrainian civil society and other actors may learn about Nordic best practices.


Our mission

We aim at creating communicative bridges between Nordic and Ukrainian partners. Believing that such bridges will help Ukraine create a more transparent environment in business and political processes, we strongly support the democratic development of Ukraine and work towards making it a successful democratic European country that would be appealing for investments and tight cooperation with other European countries. Among other foci of our activity are the strong emphasis on the respect for human rights, sustainable development, as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation. We, therefore, aim at strengthening ties with institutions and individuals that share our vision.


What we do

  • Nordic Ukraine Forum provides a platform for knowledge and expertise sharing using numerous tools.
  • Among other, we arrange public discussions and lectures given by experts in their respective fields. In 2019, such events covered the topics of the Ukrainian elections, Sweden-Ukraine relations and the Post-Maidan developments in Ukraine.

In 2021, we plan a series of equally interesting events which will be shortly announced.
