Description

The Paradox of Peace

The 30th annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum in Minneapolis, which will take place over multiple days, will explore the tensions between conflict and reconcilation, between justice and forgiveness, between hope and fear.

  • September 14: President Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia

  • September 15: the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN)
