The foundation is run on a non-profit basis. The Expo platform safeguards democracy and freedom of speech against racist, right-wing extremist, anti-Semitic and totalitarian tendencies throughout society.
In 1995, the white-power music scene was at its peak and Sweden was the world's largest producer of hate propaganda. The same year, seven people were murdered in Sweden in Nazi-related violence.

The initiative was taken by teachers, journalists and youths. Expo adopted a platform which was to be free from any links to specific parties or political groups, with the following purpose: to safeguard democracy and freedom of speech against racist, anti-Semitic and totalitarian tendencies throughout society.
