Our assignments

The Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research is commissioned by the Swedish government to promote gender research in the college- and university sector.

The secretariat also has several temporary assignments, including from the Nordic Council of Ministers.

The government assignments that included support for gender mainstreaming in governmental agencies, including colleges and universities, were transferred to the Swedish Gender Equality Agency on January 1, 2018.

Due to this transition, the governments assignment to the University of Gothenburg, which the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research is a part of, was rephrased to promote gender research in the college- and university sector in a nationwide perspective.
