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 PRIO, the most conspicuous event of 2007 was the accession of Research Professor Nils Petter Gleditsch to the presidency of the International Studies Association (ISA). He was elected by the ISA’s 4,700 members in 2006, served as president-elect during 2007, and took over as president at the ISA’s 42nd Convention, which was held in San Francisco on 26–29 March 2008. At that event, he also delivered a widely praised keynote address under the title ‘The Liberal Moment 15 Years On’, summing up 15 years of research and debate on the ‘liberal peace’ (highlights of this address are given on page 3 of this Annual Report). The annual ISA convention has become the main venue for presentation of PRIO research, with a strong PRIO presence in attendance.” – PRIO Director Stein Tønnesson
