Governance and results

Our activities are governed by ordinances and appropriation directions. Here you can read more about how our assignment is governed and how our work is monitored, however most of the documents are in Swedish.

Annual report

Each year we submit an annual report to the Government. The annual report is decided on by the board of directors and describes our programmes and expenses, as well as the results achieved.
