Study Abroad in Oslo – Peace & Conflict Studies

Despite being a small country at the "edge of the world", for decades Norway has played a major role in many difficult conflicts far away from Scandinavia. Being the home of the renowned Nobel Peace Prize has also inspired vibrant discussions on issues of peace and conflict among policy makers, scholars and students.
