Dag Hammarskj÷ld Foundation was established in 1962 in memory of the second Secretary-General of the United Nations. It is based in Uppsala, Sweden. Its purpose is to organise seminars, conferences, workshops and consultations on development issues and to publish and disseminate the results. The Foundation is an autonomous institution, which is not grant-making but carries out its own work programmes.

Since the 1960s the Foundation has organised more than 170 seminars and conferences around the world on diverse topics such as alternative education, media and publishing, biotechnology, health and UN reform. The seminars are conducted in an exploratory manner, often in an intimate setting with the purpose of providing a forum for free and frank discussions at the interface between policy and research. About half of the seminars are held at the Foundation in Uppsala, while most of the others are held in Africa, Asia and Latin America.

Participants at the seminars come from a wide range of professions and backgrounds including representatives of civil society, academia, governments, media and the private sector.
