IHRS seek collaborations with individual scholars and institutions, both on research and on archive collections, on short and long term. We are welcoming requests on different types of collaboration and especially those which leads to a joint application for funding. Please contact the Director Karin Kvist Geverts on email karin.kvist.geverts@ihrs.se if you like to propose collaborations.


IHRS has initiated a collaboration with the Norwegian HL-Senteret in Oslo. We have co-organized two Conferences in Stockholm, in 2022 on Sweden and the Holocaust in a Scandinavian Context. Local and Regional Aspects and in 2023 on Contextualizing the Holocaust in the Nordic Countries. November 1942 and October 1943. During 2024 we will organize the Conference in Oslo at the HL-senteret. We will get back to you with details regarding the theme and Call for Papers. Watch videos from the 2023 Conference here.


IHRS have initiated a long-term collaboration with the Swedish Holocaust Museum. The collaboration includes supporting the Museum with expertise in its group of experts. We are also developing a seminar series for the public. Watch episodes from the series En dag i historien here (in Swedish only).


IHRS is part of the Swedish research network for Holocaust Studies which was initiated by Associate Professor Karin Kvist Geverts Director of IHRS together with Doctoral Candidate Martin Englund of Södertörn University College, Professor Malin Thor Tureby of Malmö University and Lecturer Lars M Andersson of Uppsala University. The Research Network is multidisciplinary and gathers ca 60 scholars. A textbook on Sweden and the Holocaust for university students in teacher training is currently being developed with chapters written by scholars within the network.
