Sweden/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.5 Cross-border intercultural dialogue and co-operation

In line with the national goals for cultural policy, all Swedish cultural policy should ”promote international and intercultural exchange and cooperation“. Intercultural cooperation is thus seen as an integrated part of the general cultural policy and of general international cooperation. Programmes exist to support such exchanges both within the areas of responsibility of the Ministry of Culture and of the Ministry of Education. The government also supports trans-national intercultural dialogue, as well as trans-national activities of young people, e.g. travel grants, language or cross-cultural training courses. There are, however, no comprehensive studies or overviews of these activities.
