Many ways to get active!

The Association of Foreign Affairs in Uppsala has 8 working groups

Our operations are divided in 8 groups that specialize in different activities.

Members are always welcome to attend events, activities and all content produced from all eight groups. All of these are planned by the heads of each working group (which are also board members in UF Uppsala). If  participating in events is not sufficient and you want to get more engagerd and gain lots of professional experience, then you might consider becoming a trustee.

 

A bit cofusing? Don’t worry, we explain everything in detail down below!

We are always looking for people that want to get involved

Who composes UF Uppsala?

Members

Members of UF have access to our events, activites and produced content free of charge. If you become a member, you will have 1-year unlimited access to everything we produce as we strive to foster international debate.

There is no requirement for members to participate in the planning or any activity regarding the operation of the association. So it is up to the individual member to decide in what level of involvement they want to engage in UF and what activities and events they wish to enjoy.

Governance is decentralized and several of the board members have direct responsibility for each of the 8 groups, serving as Heads of the operations.
