About PDI

In a globalised and moving world there is a need to foster resilience and capacities for co-existence in pluralistic societies.

Our vision is to make Sweden and the world a safe and inclusive place for religious, cultural and ethnic diversity.

We spread knowledge, empower youth and develop methods for increased understanding between groups in society. The institute promotes democracy and human rights, and works preventively with racism, xenophobia and violent extremism.

The Pluralism and Dialogue Institute is currently a part of Fryshuset and is financed by the Swedish Inheritance Fund with various projects supported by the Swedish Agency for Youth and Society, the Folke Bernadotte Academy, the Gålö Foundation, Open Society Foundations and Nordic Culture Point.
