Peace Research Institute Oslo

PRIO

Oslo, Norway

PRIO's mission is to apply high-quality academic standards to the study of peace and conflict to help diminish violent conflict in practice. Scholarly research is at the core of all PRIO activities and concentrates on the driving forces behind violent conflict and on ways in which peace can be built, maintained, and spread. In addition to theoretical and empirical research, PRIO conducts policy-oriented activities and searches for solutions in cases of actual or potential violent conflict. PRIO's overall research is organized into three Strategic Institute Programs: Foreign and Security Policies; Ethics, Norms and Identities; and Conflict Resolution and Peace-building. The PRIO library holds a core stock of materials relevant to peace research, democracy, security policy, disarmament, and environmental issues. PRIO also hosts the editorial offices of Journal of Peace Research and Security Dialogue, two international journals that are published by SAGE in London.
