The Swedish Association of International Affairs (Utrikespolitiska Förbundet Sverige, UFS) is a national umbrella organisation for associations of international affairs in Sweden. The purpose of the organisation is to spread knowledge and create debate about foreign affairs and global politics from a variety of opinions and perspectives. The 11 member associations of the UFS are spread all over Sweden, from Malmö in the south to Luleå in the north. Together, they are Sweden’s largest forum for international affairs. The member associations annually arrange around 400 events about international affairs and global politics. They also arrange study trips abroad, film clubs, debate evenings and they produce their own magazines and podcasts on international affairs. Acknowledging that the need for knowledge on foreign policy in our global society is immense, this work gives more people access to knowledge and hence the tools to make an impact on the world. The UFS primarily works to spread knowledge on issues of international affairs through the member associations, but also through national-level activities and projects.
The Stockholm Association of International Affairs (SAIA) or Utrikespolitiska föreningen Stockholm (UF Stockholm) is a youth association that aims to broaden interest and understanding of international affairs. We are politically and religiously independent. We organise embassy visits, lectures with academics and politicians, study trips in Sweden and abroad, movie screenings, and more. We also have a journal highlighting topics in international affairs. UF Stockholm is a member of the Swedish Association of International Affairs (UFS), our national umbrella organisation. We are a non-profit association, financed by foundations grants and membership fees. The Stockholm Association of International Affairs is divided into committees, each responsible for an area of our work.
UPF Lund is a student association dedicated to spreading knowledge- and advocating for debate on foreign affairs. UPF Lund has eight working committees open for all members to join, in addition to a career section. We host lectures at least once a week that has been presented by prominent lecturers such as Margot Wallström and Kofi Annan. There are several media outlets such as the web magazine The Perspective Webzine, the physical magazine The Perspecitve Magazine, and the award-winning The Perspective Radio. Our travel committee organizes regular trips abroad, and a cooperation with the Lund Diplomatic Club has recently resulted in a Mentorship Programme and a Prep Course for members interested in an international career. UPF Lund is a great place to meet likeminded people from different cultures and countries, learn about foreign affairs and find outlets for creativity.
