The Swedish Research Institute in Istanbul (SRII) was founded in 1962 with the aim of promoting Swedish and Nordic research about Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean as well as other regions that are connected linguistically, culturally, or historically.

Located within the compound of the Swedish Consulate General in Istanbul, the SRII offers a local academic platform for Nordic scholars coming to Istanbul, including a library, guesthouse, workplaces and an auditorium.
