In addition to the close cooperation that the Institute has with Lund University, the Institute maintains extensive relationships with several other academic institutions as well as international organisations, non-governmental organisations and government institutions worldwide. The Institute also participates in various networks of Nordic, European and international institutions, within the framework of its mandate
The international programmes organised by the Institute involve strong partnerships with important institutions in the countries and regions where the Institute is active, including cooperation with justice sector institutions, academic institutions and national human rights institutions.
The Raoul Wallenberg Institute is mainly project funded and the main part of the funding comes from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The Institute also receives funding from other funding partners such as the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the European Commission, the Swedish Research Council, as well as from some private foundations, such as the Söderberg Foundations and the Justa Gardi Foundation. The Raoul Wallenberg Institute is grateful to these and other funding partners for their support.
