Arendalsuka concluded on Friday and PRIO Director Henrik Urdal sums up PRIO's contributions.
"I am very pleased with the Peace Research Institute Oslo contributions to Arendalsuka 2022," says Urdal. "On a scene with a predominately national focus, our ambition has been to raise important international debates."
PRIO organized three panels and contributed to another six, covering topics such as the consequences of the war in Ukraine for global food insecurity and for the workings of the UN Security Council; global migration concerns; US developments; Putin and Xi; and emerging technologies for war and peace. All are issues that PRIO researchers grapple with on a daily basis, and which we will continue to research and debate.
Next year's edition of Arendalsuka will be held from 14 to 18 August.
