Nordic politicians ask for peace research

The Nordic Council of Ministers should allocate funding for a Nordic unit for peace research as well as for security policy and research on this topic. This is the content of a proposal from the group of Left-wing Socialists and the Green Party in the Nordic Council.
“A Nordic unit for peace policy shall promote debate and research on peace policy as well as provide information on international matters to the Nordic Council. Research, education and public information will be crucial elements in this work as well as promoting Nordic initiatives in conflict prevention and civil management of emergencies. The Nordic unit of peace policy will also provide analysis and background material”, says Lennart Gustavsson of Sweden’s Left Party.
