Campaigning in the Municipality of Österåker with participants from the Balkans and Eastern Europe

May 2014, the Jarl Hjalmarson Foundation invited political active youth from the Balkans and Eastern Europe to a study visit in Sweden to be a part of the upcoming elections to the European Parliament.

The purpose of the study visit was to inform about the work of the European Union and how election campaigns to its parliament are carried through. Study visits to the Swedish Parliament and the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise interspersed with meetings with Swedish politicians and daily campaign field work such as giving out leaflets and door-to-door campaigning. The activities took place in Stockholm and close-by cities in the region.
