Hej! Welcome to the Nordic IDS Alumni Group! Bringing together alumni based in Åland, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
The aim of the group is to take advantage of our location with regard to some key development actors, institutions, and events. Also, as home to many of the 0.7% of GNI aid contributors, altruistically motivated development assistance frequently identified as Nordic ‘exceptionalism’ is evolving, so it is an interesting time to be here.
Whenever possible, let’s use this space to start sharing information about local, national and regional stories, debates, events, resources, and visiting opportunities etc. in this fascinating region with each other, and potentially other IDS alum too!
Most importantly, if you have a question about practical local logistics or work/academic stuff or something else Nordic and/or developmentish? Ask the group! – You never know what great insights are just a click away…J.
