PRIO @ 60 in 2019

Jan 2019 – Dec 2019

​In 2019 we celebrated PRIO's 60th anniversary. Throughout the year, we presented anniversary activities and treats that we hope you enjoyed.

Anniversary Committee

The anniversary was planned by a committee consisting of Lars Even Andersen, Nils Petter Gleditsch, Kristoffer Lidén, Siri Aas Rustad, Agnete Schjønsby, Torunn L. Tryggestad, and Henrik Urdal.

PRIO Stories

One of the main activities in the anniversary year was the launch of a series of interviews with people at the core of PRIO in the early as well as the later years. This project was headed by Stein Tønnesson, and planned by a committee also consisting of Cindy Horst and Helge Pharo (former chair of the PRIO board).
