"For a number of years, Sveriges Radio has prioritized foreign coverage. Today we have the Nordics' largest foreign newsroom with 20 correspondents. In a time when journalism and freedom of expression are under attack in more and more countries, we think it is more important than ever that journalists are on the ground and can report on developments. To understand the world better, both knowledge and presence are needed"
