Supporting the Best in Peace Research
The conference ‘The legacy of war time rape: mapping key concepts and issues’ organized by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in cooperation with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is opened today with a speech by Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict, Ms. Radhika Coomaraswamy. In this capacity, she serves as a moral voice and independent advocate to build awareness and give prominence to the rights and protection of boys and girls affected by armed conflict..

The International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (PRIO) is celebrating its 50th anniversary in June. We would like to open our anniversary week with an Anniversary Exhibition of photography that visually represents the subjects, and subject matter, of PRIO’s research into peace and conflict.
It is now possible to download the report from the November 2007 Conference Peacebuilding in Afghanistan: How To Reach the Women.
PRIO organized this conference in co-operation with The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 130 people attended. The conference is part of the Norwegian government’s effort to increase the civilian element of its contribution to stability in Afghanistan: reaching out to the population, increasing security for civilians, and providing basic needs such as health services and education. With this in mind the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has asked PRIO to organize a conference on the particular needs of Afghan women and how best to meet these needs.
Terrified and Terrifying tells the stories of child soldiers from Afghanistan, Burma, Colombia, Cambodia, Congo, Nepal, Nicaragua, Palestine, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda and Zambia. The exhibition spotlights what is called the world's longest hostage drama - the use of children as soldiers.
PRIO is collaborating with Nobel Peace Center on this exhibition.
The purpose of this seminar is to share the main findings and the policy recommendations from the What Kind of Peace is Possible (WKOP) project with key Norwegian audiences. The WKOP project addresses current policy debates on peacebuilding, conflict prevention and fragile states - from southern and northern perspectives.
