Our annual reports give an in-depth overview of the activities and finances of the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in the given year.
“2006 was the fourth year of existence for PRIO’s Centre for the Study of Civil War (CSCW). Together with other Norwegian Centres of Excellence (CoE), the Centre underwent a mid-term evaluation during the year – with highly satisfactory results. The Research Council of Norway thus decided to reconfirm CoE funding for a second five-year period, 2008–12. This was a great achievement both for the Centre and for PRIO as a whole. Under the leadership of Scott Gates, the CSCW has become an essential part of PRIO’s research environment, inspiring academic research at the whole institute and contributing to an impressive increase in PRIO’s academic publications. […] In the new four-year strategy adopted by the PRIO Board in April 2006, PRIO aims to expand its research on gender, security and peace, and to build competence in two new fields: energy and migration.” – PRIO Director Stein Tønnesson
