Memberships in International Organisations

The City of Stockholm’s involvement in international organisations and networks gives elected representatives and employees opportunities to meet their counterparts in other cities. 

It also generates project based cooperation and exchange of knowledge, experiences and best practice models. Membership of organisations and networks are valuable platforms for the City’s international commitments.


Each administration and municipal company within the City is responsible for prioritizing their own international memberships. There are also networks and organisations which cover several administrations, where the administrations and companies are only responsible for their area of expertise.

The responsibility of the coordination of the City’s membership of these organisations and networks lies centrally within the City. The prioritized memberships are regularly reviewed to correspond with the City’s overall priorities.
