Jan 2021 – Dec 2022

On 1 January 2021 Norway joined the UN Security Council as elected member for the period 2021-22. Norway has joined the Security Council with high ambitions and a strong confidence in what a non-permanent member and small state can bring to the table. Four thematic priority areas have been identified as particularly important to Norway during its membership period:

  • Peace diplomacy;
  • Inclusion of women;
  • Protection of civilians (including children); and
  • Climate change and security.
