The political focus of Annelie Enochson is concentrated to three issues; freedom of speech and religion in Sweden and internationally, compassion for the less fortunate, and the local issues of Gothenburg and its progress.fact|date=October 2008

With a background in Gothenburg and the local development of the city, Enochson has several times by motions and interpellations pointed out the infrastructural jams that interfere with the growth of the city.fact|date=October 2008

Through her international experiences, Enochson has in close proximity felt the consequences of the lack of freedoms in religion and speech. The parliamentary work of Enochson has repeatedly addressed these issues in countries like Turkey, Belarus, Iraq and the surrounding Middle East as a region.fact|date=October 2008

Minorities in China were given much media when Enochson nominated the Uighur champion of human rights Rebeiya Kadéer for the Nobel Peace price in 2007. In April, 2008, Enochson hosted a visit by Kadéer that rendered much attention in the Swedish media. Enochson is also a known friend of Israel and chairwoman of the chapter of the Sweden-Israel Friendship Association in West Sweden. In May 2008 Enochson was awarded the Jerusalem-price by the World Zionist Federation for her work in support of the nation of Israel.fact|date=October 2008

The commitment of Enochson towards the less fortunate has perhaps most famously been expressed through the motion on “Abducted Children” that she put forth in the Parliament in 2006. Her motion described how children in custody battles are kidnapped by their parents and brought abroad. Enochson addressed the need for greater resources and that direct plans of actions must be made at any time a child is abducted. The committee of the Constitution recognized the motion and issued a review for the Government to be made on how the concerned issue can be improved upon.fact|date=October 2008
