Here at the Swedish Defence University, the national level meets the international level. We educate those individual in society who will someday be tasked with managing crises and conflicts. Some of these people will be engaged in top-level politics in New York or Brussels. Others will be contributing to more resilient communities in the Swedish countryside. All of them will be making significant efforts in strengthening societal security.
We educate students who will be tomorrow's officers in the Swedish Armed Forces as well as students who aim for a career in the civilian sector. International efforts are increasingly characterized by interaction between military and civilian experts, and therefore we provide an important forum for sharing knowledge and practices from both worlds. This unique educational experience is only available in Sweden here at the Swedish Defence University.
