Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Johan Galtung will discuss alternatives to the one-state, two-state solutions for Israel-Palestine.
A sociologist and mathematician by profession, Galtung is recognized as the ‘founding father’ of peace studies and conflict transformation as a scientific discipline. He founded the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (1959), the world’s first academic research center focused on peace studies, as well as the influential Journal of Peace Research (1964). He is currently the president of the Galtung-Institut for Peace Theory & Peace Practice.
In addition to being a frequent Nobel Peace Prize nominee, he is also winner of the Right Livelihood award, which is the alternative Nobel. He has negotiated with many heads of state, inspired the idea of the Organization of Security and Cooperation in Europe – the OSCE, and has helped resolve many conflicts from families to nations to regions.
