Announcing the Stig and Brita-Stina Hagstrom Memorial Fund

With generous support from the Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation, The Europe Center launched its research and visiting scholar program on Sweden to study the challenges and opportunities shared by the Scandinavian and Baltic regions, the transatlantic community, and the United States. The Center devotes special emphasis to research that explores models of regional and international policy, immigration, integration, peace and reconciliation, effective governance, rule of law, and development.

Anna Lindh Visitor Program

The Anna Lindh Visitor Program is designed to bring scholars from Sweden as well as those scholars working on subjects of importance to the region, to Stanford University for periods of research, library and archive consultation, and collaboration with Stanford faculty and community. 

During 2013-2014, Anna Lindh Fellows will be researching topics such as rethinking US-Sweden relations and American Studies, and Jewish women's encounters with Scandinavia in the 1900s-1940s. These projects are designed in collaboration with members of the Stanford faculty.  The purpose of their research stay is to deepen the collaborative effort and progress towards the completion of their project.  Visiting Anna Lindh fellows have over the years played an important role in enhancing and expanding knowledge about Sweden and Scandinavia at Stanford.

Stanford-Sweden-Regional peer university exchange

The Europe Center at Stanford University has established cooperative relationships with leading peer universities and research centers in Sweden and the Scandinavian and Baltic regions.  The aim of the affiliation with peer institutions is to build a community of senior and emerging scholars and policy figures, working with the Europe Center’s affiliated research scholars, and contributing to the advancement of knowledge on areas of mutual scholarly and policy concern in Sweden, the Scandinavian and Baltic Region, and the United States and the transatlantic community. 

 Cooperating institutions include:
