The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI) organizes about 80 seminars and events throughout the year. The seminars range from large public events, closed roundtable discussions to research seminars for a smaller group.
The seminars are open to the general public but it is necessary to register. You can listen to our seminars and interviews on our podcast channel The UI Podcast and watch select seminars on our Youtube channel. UI also organizes seminars for highschool students (in cooperation with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency - SIDA) and all-day courses focusing on a particular foreign affairs theme. UI also participates in events and seminars organized by others, for example the Bond Annual Conference, the Baltic Sea Fest, the Almedalen political week, Globsec and Göteborgs book fair.
