30 Dec.: SIPRI mourns passing of former ChairwomanThe Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) mourns the passing of Karin Söder, former Chairwoman of the SIPRI Governing Board (1978-1979). As Sweden's first female foreign minister (1976-1978) and its first female political party leader (Center Party, 1985-1987), Söder paved the way for women in Swedish politics. She also served as Minister for Health and Social Affairs (1979–1982), Chairwoman of Save the Children Sweden (1983-1995) and President of the Nordic Council (1984-1985). After a 20 year parliamentary career, Söder will be remembered as groundbreaking political figure, and a steadfast advocate for peace and children's rights.
