27th 2015 NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FORUM
MARCH 6-8, 2015
The 27th Nobel Peace Prize Forum concentrated on issues related to sustainable and inclusive peacemaking and peacebuilding. Friday is focused on Democracy and Justice, Saturday’s theme is sustainable peacemaking, and on Sunday, which is International’s Women’s Day, we’ll celebrate “Women Who Lead.”
This year we welcomed the 2013 Nobel Laureate, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons(OPCW) and Former United States President and Nobel Laureate Jimmy Carter and his latest book: “A Call to Action: Women, Religion, Violence and Power”.
Each day delegates had the opportunity to participate in smaller dialogue sessions led by international mediation and peacebuilding experts involved with the United Nations and others in situations such as Syria, Libya, Yemen, and the Central African Republic.
