Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo is held every year on 11 December as part of the annual Nobel Peace Prize celebrations in Oslo. 

The Forum was added to the annual Nobel Peace Prize celebrations in Oslo in 2016. It serves as an arena for interdisciplinary discussion and reflection on pivotal and timely issues of importance to international peace and security. Depending on the selected topic, the Forum will bring together a unique constellation of former Nobel Laureates, leading international political experts, policy makers, key opinion leaders, civil society and business community representatives, journalists, students, and the general public.

The speakers address an audience of almost 500 people in the Oslo University Aula, a beautiful lecturing hall decorated with original paintings by Edvard Munch. The event is organized by the Norwegian Nobel Institute and Nobel Peace Prize – Research and Information AS in partnership with the University of Oslo. The inaugural Forum was made possible by generous financial support from InCircl and GoodXChange.

The Forum is broadcast live in Norway, and made available online. Students and others following the program are welcome to make comments and pose questions through social media before and during the speeches, some of which may be brought into the discussion.
