Celebration of research cooperation between Rwanda and Sweden
22 March 2023
Representatives of the “UR-Sweden Program” are at the moment in Rwanda to celebrate 20 years of research cooperation between the countries, funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency. The Faculty of Law at Uppsala University has been part of this bilateral project for eight years.
Since 2015, the Faculty of Law in Uppsala and the School of Law at the University of Rwanda (UR) have collaborated on a capacity-building project, where three doctoral students are currently pursuing their studies at the faculty with funding from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency.
Professor Daniel Stattin, assisted by research administrator Peter Johnson, is the Faculty of Law's coordinator in the cooperation project, and the work in Rwanda is led by Associate Professor Etienne Ruvebana. For some years now, the International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University has been responsible for all Swedish cooperation projects between Rwanda and Swedish universities.

Tom Mulisa, Constitutional Law
Main supervisor: Anna Jonsson Cornell, Uppsala University
Assistant supervisor: Etienne Ruvebana, University of Rwanda
