Brochures about the Riksbank

The brochures “The Riksbank’s role in society” and “What does the Riksbank do?” are no longer updated by the Riksbank and are therefore no longer available.

For brief and easy-to-read information about the Riksbank's role in the economy and what the Riksbank does, we refer you instead to our films about the Riksbank.
