UI Papers are working papers and similar manuscripts reporting the results of research related to UI’s focus areas. UI Papers are written by UI researchers, visiting researchers, or other researchers wishing to publish with UI (authors are occasionally invited based on their international profile and research reputation). UI Papers enable researchers to publish and register the results of research projects fairly swiftly while retaining the rights to publish in other outlets if so desired. Research quality, readability, and relevance are the main criteria for publication. UI Papers may also include in-depth policy analyses, which are rigorously researched but less ambitious in terms of theory and scientific methodology. Each type of publication is subject to an in-house planning and approval process including quality control. They solely reflect the view of the author(s).
UI Reports are typically papers of a non-academic kind. They are written without the requirements typically placed on academic papers. The authors of UI Reports are experts in fields that are of interest to UI. The analysis presented in an UI Report covers aspects typically not covered by other UI publications. High-quality conference reports may also be published within the series UI Reports.

A partnership for a changing world: reflections on the future of Sweden-India relations
Research Sweden and India recently celebrated 75 years of diplomatic relations. Much has changed in the two countries, and the world, since 1948.

The contributions range from reflections on whether Sweden’s outreach to India is attuned to New Delhi’s foreign policy outlook, what Sweden could learn from the remarkable transformation in US-India relations, or how actors like Russia and China may complicate the Sweden-India partnership, to suggest new ways in which Sweden and India could combine forces elsewhere in the world, or in new economic or technological domains.
