The present study deals with the Swedish Save the Children Fund’s, Rädda Barnen’s expansion during 1938-1956.

What factors enabled this advanceand how this affected Rädda Barnen’s performance and outlining of relief work will beanalysed. Swedish politics and interactions with the Swedish government, but also with otherrelief organizations, shaped the territory within which Rädda Barnen developed. For thisreason, these interactions will be investigated too. In the interactions that took place on boththe national and international level, struggles seemed to surfaced between the differentorganizations, and what was at stake in these struggles will also be examined.
