Södertörn University and the Baltic Sea
Research focusing on the Baltic Sea and Eastern Europe has always had a leading role at Södertörn University. Our task is to promote research about this region, in all disciplines. Researchers from many different subjects gather under this shared flag: political science, biology, ethnology, economics, journalism, comparative literature, etc.
Many of the university’s research projects are funded by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies. This was initiated by the Swedish government in 1994 and is tasked with funding research and doctoral education linked to the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe at Södertörn University. The university is also home to the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies, a research centre that develops and encourages research in this field.
