Swedish Media Publishers’ Association

The Swedish Media Publishers’ Association (Tidningsutgivarna in Swedish, or TU for short) is the trade association for Sweden’s newspapers and other media companies.

The over 100 members throughout Sweden publish newspapers and editorial sites, operate sales companies, broadcast TV and radio, and so on.

The Swedish Media Publishers’ Association is one of the founders and main financiers of the Media Ombudsman (MO) and the Media Council (MON), the independent self-disciplinary bodies which deals with complaints about the editorial content of newspapers, magazines, broadcast media and their websites, as well as social media.

The Association’s work includes participating in the public debate, as well as formulating and putting forward questions and announcements of importance to the media industry.

The Swedish Media Publishers’ Association also offers comprehensive legal advice and service to its members on different matters.

The office is situated in Stockholm, where eight employees are working in law, marketing, information, and administration.
