About Swedish PEN
Swedish PEN’s commitment is to defend the freedom of expression. Our task is based on the premise that the written word should know no borders, neither political, nor national, nor religious. The members of PEN support PEN’s charter, which highlights our responsibility to combat lies, racism, and hatred between ethnic groups and social classes.
Swedish PEN is a non-political, non-governmental organisation of writers, journalists, librarians, publishers, and other literary workers, and constitutes one of the more than one hundred PEN Centres in the global network PEN International.
