Our annual reports give an in-depth overview of the activities and finances of the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in the given year.
“For all of us working for a more peaceful world, 2013 has been a tough year. The Arab Spring has largely morphed into authoritarian politics. The Syria conflict rages on, a brutal revelation of the shortcomings of international diplomacy. Peace in East Asia seems increasingly fragile, with renewed prospects for confrontations between states. Even amidst all these grave developments, it is worth reminding ourselves that armed conflicts are considerably fewer, and claim far fewer lives, than they did only a couple of decades ago.” – PRIO Director Kristian Berg Harpviken
