About the Secretariat

The Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research is a part of the University of Gothenburg. We promote gender research in the college- and university sector.

The Secretariat has been a unit within the University of Gothenburg since 1998 and operates under the direction of the Swedish government. Our staff consist of research coordinators, project coordinators, investigators and communicators and administrative coordinators.

Since 2012, the co-operation agency Nordic Information for Gender Gender, NIKK, has been placed at the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research on behalf of the Nordic Council of Ministers.
