Theme II: Sida

Welcome to FUF-Magazine, a website from the Swedish Development Forum’s division in Lund (FUF Pop-Up Lund).


As the word itself indicates, Development Cooperation can only be successful if everyone pulls together. Multilateral organisations and global networks are an important part of the cooperation, but so are also individual nation-states. Sweden’s contribution primarily goes via Sida – the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency – which is the theme of the second edition of FUF Magazine. We will turn attention to Sida’s work in various settings, its sometimes controversial history and discuss its collaboration with business. We hope you’ll find it interesting!

About Elin Fredriksson

After visiting several development projects in Senegal, Elin became interested in how international development influences local communities on a small scale. One thing led to the other and now she is studying a master in applied cultural analysis at Lund University. She hopes to be able to make use of her skills in an NGO after her studies.
