PRIO @ 60 in 2019

PRIO @ 60 in 2019
Jan 2019 - Dec 2019

​In 2019 we will be celebrating PRIO's 60th anniversary. Throughout the year, we will present anniversary activities and treats that we hope you will enjoy. This page will be developed as new elements are added.

Anniversary Committee

The anniversary has been – and is being – 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.

Anniversary Interviews

One of the main activities in the anniversary year will be the launch of a series of interviews with people at the core of PRIO in the early years. The first interviews will be launched in January and February. This project is being headed by Stein Tønnesson, and planned by a committee also consisting of Cindy Horst and Helge Pharo (former chair of the PRIO board).

Anniversary Week (3–7 June)

This week will be packed with activities of different kinds, some open to the public – some for PRIOites only. This list will be expanded as and when plans materialize:

​3–4 June
Security Dialogue workshop. By invitation only.
​4 June
