The Swedish Institute (Sweden)
Promoting Sweden around the world
The Swedish Institute is a public agency with a staff of approximately 130 employees, with offices in Stockholm, Visby and Paris. Our commitment is to gain knowledge and understanding of different cultures, their people, and to promote Sweden and Swedish issues globally. The Swedish Institute helps Sweden reach various international goals concerning foreign policy, education, international aid and development. Our activities span over fields such as culture, society, research, higher education, business, innovation, democracy and global development. We promote interest and confidence in Sweden around the world. The SI seeks to establish cooperation and lasting relations with other countries through strategic communication and exchange in different fields. Our work with Sweden's image abroad and our activities in international development cooperation go hand in hand. The overarching goal is to create mutual relationships with other countries around the world. Our support of Swedish language instruction at foreign universities also fits into this common agenda.
