Security Council Resolution 1325: Civil Society Monitoring Report
Sweden has no recent history of internal conflict it is often proudly said that Sweden has not had war for 200 years. Sweden has for a long period had a policy of neutrality and nonalignment.
This position of neutrality has however changed gradually during the last years Sweden has become more active in the European security cooperation, and moved closer to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), without being a member. This changed position is clear in tihs year's Statement of Government Policy, which states that Sweden, as a member of the European Union, is part of a political alliance and that it takes its share of responsibility for Europe's security.
