Join us for a unique seminar with Ola Rosling, co-founder of the Gapminder Foundation.

Together with his father Hans Rosling and his wife Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Ola Rosling contributed to 'Factfulness: Ten Reasons We're Wrong About the World – and Why Things Are Better Than You Think'. Factfulness was the word Hans Rosling coined for sticking to opinions which can be supported by facts. The book was the culmination of his life's work: a guide to thinking carefully and critically about what we think we know.

Like Gapminder, PRIO is occupied with some of the same questions and dedicated to making sure science informs critical thinking and policy advice.

At this seminar, Ola Rosling will present the major conclusions of the book, while PRIO will take up common myths and misconceptions about armed conflict, including the things that even seasoned researchers sometimes get wrong.
