INT/Nordic Africa Institute


The Nordic Africa Institute (NAI) is a center for research, documentation and information on modern Africa in the Nordic region. Based in Uppsala, Sweden, the Institute is dedicated to providing timely, critical and alternative research and analysis of Africa in the Nordic countries and to strengthen the co-operation between African and Nordic researchers. Finland´s long term general support to the Nordic Africa-Institute is targeted to research, seminars, conferences, publications, library services and enhancing policy dialogue. NAI´s work and research contributes indirectly to development objectives of poverty reduction. After the recent evaluations the institute will continue in its recent organizational form as Swedish governmental organization. Institute will continue actively enhancing the quality of its research and overall work as well as result based management. Finland´s contribution for the institution for the years 2015 - 2017 is suggested to amount 970 000 euros in total.
