Cecilia Karin Maria Wikström, née Sundström, originally Nodbjörk (born 17 October 1965 in Svanstein, Övertorneå Municipality, Norrbotten County) is a Swedish politician and Member of the European Parliament from Sweden. She has been a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) since 2009. She is a member of the Liberal People's Party, part of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe.
Wikström supports LGBT causes in Russia, quote from her website: "LIVE AND LET LOVE – Supporting LGBT-people’s rights in Russia [...] 2,000 people of the city of Stockholm gathered at the Stockholm Olympic Stadium to show their support to the LGBT people of Russia and to sing the most beautiful national anthem in the world."
Quote from the article: "EU countries who refuse to help others with refugees could lose EU funds, if EU parliamentarian Cecilia Wikstroem gets her way. The Swedish liberal is responsible for the European Parliament’s position on a reform of the Dublin regulation, which defines what EU country is responsible for handing a migrant's asylum claim."
All EU countries should be forced to accept refugees, suggests the Swedish EU parliamentarian Cecilia Wikström in her report on the future refugee situation, now to be negotiated within the EU. It is impossible when there are three, four, five countries in the EU that take responsibility, and the other 24 do nothing at all or very little, says Cecilia Wikström to Swedish Radio.
She has also held various positions in national and regional boards, such as the Swedish UNESCO Board, the Police County Board and Liberal Women group in Uppsala County. Since 2001 she is the owner and executive Director of Wikström Consulting LTD.
She is also a member of the European Parliament Intergroup on the Western Sahara and the European Parliament Intergroup on LGBT Rights.
