Shared values for civil servants

Shared values for Swedish civil servants are based on laws and ordinances. These are presented in the form of six principles, which together provide guidelines for how government agencies and employees should conduct their work. Although the nature of agency operations and professions may differ, these basic principles remain the same.

  • Democracy
  • Legality
