For the Johan Skytte Institute of Political Studies, international cooperation is a key dimension of our activities. It is organised through various research- and teaching-related agreements, projects and networks.
We participate in various international projects, aimed at research, teaching, international partnerships, mobility of the students and lectures and cooperation between universities and society. The Institute has a variety of international partners among universities, research institutions, higher education institutions and other institutions abroad. The cooperation is based on agreements to foster student and staff mobility and other type of research and higher education cooperation.
The staff of the Institute is involved in several networks, both in form of institutional and individual membership. The aim of co-operation networks is to represent the shared interests of their members and to serve as forums for exchanging ideas on matters related to higher education and research. Co-operation networks also facilitate the search for new partners and strengthen academic and cultural ties between universities. The networks function as a channel for efficient communication and foster the exchange of researchers, teaching staff and students.
