Galtung was one of the founders of Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) in 1959, and in 1969, he was awarded the title of Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies at the University of Oslo, as the first in the world. Since 1977, Galtung has lived in Spain, but the 87 year-old still receives invitations from all over the world. Johan Galtung's great involvement in peace research has been rewarded internationally with many awards, and in December he was rewarded with no less than the alternative Nobel Prize, "People's Peace Prize".
Johan Galtung had an active program the short time he visited Norway in January, and we were so lucky to have an exclusive meeting with him, which we invited our readers to attend.
In a conversation with Ny Tid's board member John Y. Jones, Johan Galtung met around 70 morning birds at Filmens hus on 18 January.
Didn't you get it? Fear not, we filmed the whole scene.
