About the Oslo Peace House

The Peace House is a unique attempt to collect a large part of Norwegian peace movement under one roof. Welcome!

The Norwegian peace movement has for long been a fragmentation, functioning as satellites in a peace political universe. The discussions about peace and security issues have been limited to few experts and the subjects have not been discussed on a broad popular scale. This has provided a democratic challenge to peace and security issues in Norway. The need for a collection and establishment of a stronger, more unified movement has long been present. The Peace House is a response to this. The Peace House will be an arena for greater participation in peace efforts for the organizations that work in the field. The benefits of this project are numerous. Several externally-oriented activities will be conducted for the various peace organizations. It will strengthen the peace policy debate, and ensure more voices to join. As a result, improve the recruitment to subjects and work of reliance. Hence, provide more activities and a stronger basis for business. It is with pride and pleasure the Norwegian Peace Council and our member organizations invite all of you to Oslo’s first Peace House.
