Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) is the Swedish government agency for peace, security and development.
As part of Sweden’s international development aid, we promote peace in conflict-affected countries. We offer training and advice and conduct research in order to strengthen peacebuilding and statebuilding, and we grant funds to civil society organizations working with peace and security. Moreover, we deploy civilian personnel to peace operations and election observation missions primarily led by the UN, EU and OSCE. The agency is named after Count Folke Bernadotte, UN’s first peace mediator.
