Philanthropy & Democracy: A public seminar inaugurating the guest scholar program in philanthropic studies at Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College

Ersta Sköndal Bräcke University College establishes an international visiting professorship that aims to attract philanthropy scholars whose work in the humanities or social sciences can contribute to the Swedish and international conversations on philanthropy, foundations, democracy, and equality. Ideally, such a scholar will bring some clarity to if and how philanthropies, foundations, charities and non-profit-organizations can play democratizing roles in society and not least in the lives of immigrants and other minority groups.

The guest scholar program has been made possible through a grant from Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.

To officially inaugurate the new program, a public seminar will be held at Campus Ersta on the 30th of May, 13-16. Here is the seminar schedule.


Please register through the form below. Attendance is free, but the seats are limited. We will charge a fee of 200 Swedish Crowns if you don't show up and haven't notified us before the seminar. You can cancel your registration through the same form and writing "Cancel" in the field for messages.
