Facts:

CIRCUS (Centre for Integrated Research on Culture and Society) is a platform for transversal cultural and social research. In addition to IfU, the above-mentioned research collaboration includes CEMFOR (Center for Multidisciplinary Research on Racism) and BVU at Edu (Child and Youth Studies).

Institutet för utbildningsrätt (IfU) / The Institute for Educational Law (IfU) aims to inspire and support research and education in the field of education law in Sweden in the broadest possible way. IfU works on the basis of the broad scientific university environment to ensure that jurisprudence and closely related issues, with a focus on schools and colleges, are highlighted in a fruitful way. 

IfU is the most important educational law center in Sweden. Another goal is that research and other activities in the field of education law should also enrich other areas of society.
