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.
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.
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).

The number of people killed in wars is the lowest in seven years. This statistic is revealed in new data from peace researchers at Uppsala University (UCDP) and the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO). The researchers are concerned, however, about the increase in the number of conflicts where external states are involved. This is because such conflicts tend to last longer and be bloodier.
This year, we will celebrate PRIO's 60th Anniversary, with a peak in our Anniversary Week at the beginning of June. We hope for, and plan for, a lot of interesting (and fun) anniversary activities.
