The agency consists of three departments and a secretariat:
- Department for Missions, Elections and Deployment (MED)
- Department for Peace Operations, Leadership and Gender (PLG)
- Department for Prevention, Peacebuilding and Governance (PPG)
- Secretariat for Development Cooperation Strategies (SDC)
These are supported by an administrative department covering finance, record-keeping, archiving, reporting, planning, coordination, security, human resources, communications, management support and IT.
The FBA is led by a Director-General. Sven-Eric Söder was appointed Director-General of the agency in 2012 and continues in that post. Jonas Alberoth is Deputy Director-General.
The management is supported by a directorate and a government-appointed advisory council.
The directorate is involved in the planning, implementation and follow-up of the day-to-day work of the agency. The directorate also deals with issues of a strategic nature concerning the agency.
Apart from the Director-General and the Deputy Director-General, the directorate consists of:
Markus Derblom, Head of the Department for Prevention, Peacebuilding and Governance
Anna Wikner, Head of the Department for Missions, Elections and Deployment
Johanna Gårdmark, Head of the Department for Peace Operations, Leadership and Gender
Magdalena Tham Lindell, Head of the Secretariat for Development Cooperation Strategies
Kicki Westin, Head of Communications
Anna Norberg, Head of Human Resources
Inger Näslund, Head of Finance
Kjell Rörström, Head of Security
Helén Jarlsvik, Chief of Staff
The advisory council is the highest advisory body of the agency. Members of the council are appointed by the Swedish government and sessions are held four times per year. The Director-General keeps the council informed about the work of FBA and is chairman of the council.
