CMES is a long-standing collaborative partner of the Association of Foreign Affairs in Lund (UPF). Each semester CMES and UPF co-arrange a public event together to broaden knowledge and encourage discussion on human rights issues and the Middle East.
In December 2021, CMES and UPF hosted Professor Isak Svensson (Uppsala University), who gave the talk "Jihadist Peace - Is Peacemaking Possible in Islamist Armed Conflicts?". The lecture is available to watch on UPF's Facebook page.
The Association of Foreign Affairs in Lund (abbreviated to UPF Lund from its Swedish name, Utrikespolitiska Föreningen) provides a space for students and those interested in exploring the world of politics and foreign affairs. UPF’s official language is English. For more information, visit their website.
