Reference group for Norway's membership in the UN Security Council

2020 - 2022 (Ongoing)
Reference group
Norway has a seat in the UN Security Council in 2021 - 2022. Through this project we will facilitate meetings with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to discuss important strategic issues.

This reference group has been established in cooperation with PRIO and the Norwegian MFA to facilitate a set of meetings between researchers and the MFA on issues of strategic importance during the two-year period of Norway’s seat at the Council.

Funding program

The project is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
