The Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis seeks to inspire peacemaking efforts by lifting up the work of recent Nobel Peace Prize laureates. The laureates, who have been recognized for their actions and the concrete results of their work by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, are highlighted and celebrated during our annual event, providing a platform for students, faculty members, policy makers, business leaders and civil society to advance the work on pressing current issues related to the many Nobel Peace Prize awards.

The Forum offers a range of sessions, from laureate plenaries, keynote sessions, panel discussion, and breakout sessions, including workshops that provide an opportunity for our attendees to take action and advance on pressing current issues related to the multidimensional nature of peace awarded the recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Since 1989, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum has served as a portal and a platform to draw inspiration and lessons from these exemplary leaders where the primary focus is to educate a new generation of peacemakers and change agents to carry forward the work and goals, as stated in Alfred Nobel’s will of promoting “fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”

We welcome all to this important work, and look forward to seeing ways you will contribute to the next Forum which will take place September 13-15, 2018 on Augsburg University campus!
