Gjenbosetting av flyktninger: En god varig løsning?

Gjenbosetting av flyktninger: En god varig løsning?

Wed, 24 Apr 2019 13:00-15:00 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo

​«Hjelpe dem her, eller hjelpe dem der?» Kvoteflyktnignsordningen har vært gjenstand for intense politiske drakamper de siste årene, og spennet går fra de som mener dette er en av de viktigste humanitære bidragene Norge gir til beskyttelse av flyktninger, til de som mener det er en kostbar løsning eller kun ønsker å begrense antallet flyktninger Norge mottar. Diskusjonene har fokusert på antall kvoteflyktninger Norge bør motta årlig, hvorvidt man bør sette et tak på det og i hvilken grad dette er en god varig løsning.

Art, Peace and Conflict: Artistic Activism in Syria

Art, Peace and Conflict: Artistic Activism in Syria

Fri, 26 Apr 2019 14:30-16:00 - PRIO, Hausmanns gate 3, Oslo

​How is conflict understood, organized and mediated through different art forms? How does conflict affect cultural production and discourses of war and conflict? How may cultural expressions prevent, mitigate and end violent conflict? And what inspirations and responsibilities do artists have in these processes?

PRIO Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict invites you to a conversation with Diala Brisly and Kjetil Selvik, who will reflect on such questions.

Turning the Tables: Women’s multiple roles in peace processes

A Conversation with Prominent Women from Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen

Thu, 09 May 2019 10:00-12:00 - Litteraturhuset, Wergelandsveien 29, Oslo

​Despite women’s contributions to preventing and resolving conflicts, they are often excluded from the formal peace process. In the major peace processes of the last two decades, women have only had marginal input and presence.  Furthermore, very few peace processes have inclusion mechanisms. Of the 11 agreements signed in 2017, only three contained gender-sensitive provisions. In this panel discussion prominent women from Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen will provide insight into the main obstacles facing women in peace processes today and explore ways forward in their respective countries.
