Peace in a world of threats

NUPI participates in the high-level thematic debate on UN, Peace and Security organized by the UN General Assembly 10-11 May 2016.

This event, organized by the President of the General Assembly, Mogens Lykketoft, will be a platform to identify key threats and engage in a strategic reflection about today’s challenges to international peace and security. 30 Foreign Ministers will participate in the meetings, among them Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.
