The independent resource on global security

Conference Partners

The 2021 Stockholm Security Conference is organized by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. SIPRI would like to thank the following partner organizations for their support in making the conference possible.



British Embassy Stockholm


The British Embassy in Stockholm

The British Embassy represents the United Kingdom and its interest in Sweden.  The role of the Embassy is primarily to strengthen the longstanding and close UK/Sweden bilateral relationship across all areas of mutual interest, including spearheading a mutually beneficial security, defence and law enforcement partnership with Sweden to protect both countries’ populations and interests from international threats and transnational challenges, including terrorism, illegal immigration, serious and organised crime and illicit finance. Other core focus areas include increasing trade and investment between the UK and Sweden, a science partnership that identifies solutions to global challenges, strong climate advocacy to tackle long-term global climate and environmental challenges, and championing with Sweden international efforts to promote shared values and safeguard democracy, human rights, gender equality and the rule of law. 


Irish Embassy


The Embassy of Ireland in Sweden

The Embassy of Ireland represents Ireland and its interests in Sweden. The Embassy supports political and official level dialogue and close cooperation as befits countries with shared values and shared membership of the European Union. Cultural, educational and people-to-people exchanges are also promoted. The Embassy works closely with Irish state agencies to realise trade, investment and research objectives. The Embassy, the Irish Food Board (Bord Bia), Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Science Foundation Ireland form “Team Ireland”. Together, we implement Ireland’s Strategy for the Nordic Region (2021-2025), a new framework to further deepen the strong foundations of Ireland’s relationship with Sweden; to promote our shared values internationally and to increase our influence and impact in the Nordic region.


The German Federal Foreign Office

The German Federal Foreign Office represents Germany’s interests to the world. It promotes international exchange and offers protection and assistance to Germans abroad. With its offices in Berlin and Bonn and a network of around 230 missions abroad, the Federal Foreign Office maintains Germany’s relations with other countries as well as with international and supranational organisations.

Disarmament, arms control and non‑proliferation are priorities of German foreign and security policy. Germany works with its partners, particularly in the EU and NATO, to strengthen and further develop existing international treaties. New challenges to our common security and new technological developments are creating the need to develop new international rules. With our event sequence “Capturing Technology. Rethinking Arms Control”, we have provided a platform for exploring the implications of new technologies for global security among participants from diplomacy, military, science and industry, including at high level conferences in March 2019 and November 2020.
