New Nordic Peace – Nordic Peace and Conflict Resolution Efforts

The report “New Nordic Peace: Nordic Peace and Conflict Resolution Efforts” was published on 9 April 2019. Besides noting the growing interest of Nordic countries for mutual co-operation and strengthening Nordic Peace brand,  the Report also highlights two areas where the Nordic countries could work more closely together. One of the areas being  Women, peace and security Agenda (WPS), which the report recommends should be stressed as part of the Nordic peace brand, and preventive diplomacy and conflict resolution. We spoke about the findings and recommendations with the authors of the Report –  Anine Hagemann and Isabel Bramsen, both  from the Center for Resolution of International Conflicts (CRIC) at the Department of Political Science, University of Copenhagen.
