New Secretary General appointed

The Palme Center's board has today appointed Oscar Ernerot as the new Secretary General of the Olof Palme International Center.

– With over 15 years of experience from the Swedish labour movement’s international solidarity work, Oscar Ernerot has both the networks and the experiences needed to lead and develop the Palme Center operations in a challenging time, says Palme Center’s chair Margot Wallström.

Oscar Ernerot comes most recently from the position as the head of the Swedish Trade Union Confederation’s unit for International affairs. In that role, he has had a strong focus on international trade union policy and foreign policy issues, democracy and human rights, as well as foreign aid policy. Oscar has previously also worked as head of the International Department at the Palme Center.

– To be Secretary General of the Swedish labor movement’s organisation for international solidarity is an assignment one cannot refuse. The opportunity to actively work to meet the attacks on our democracy and the troubling developments around the world together with the Palme Center’s member and partner organisations gives me a lot of energy.
– If we are to be able to reverse the authoritarian development, we need to get together and cooperate even more. Both here at home in Sweden as well as with our many democratic and progressive friends around the world. Together we are much stronger than many of us realize.

Oscar Ernerot begins his duties as Secretary General on September 1st, 2024.
