The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a four day international event that inspires peacemaking by celebrating the work of Nobel Peace Prize winners. Attendees may purchase tickets for a single day or for all four days. The 2014 topic is Crossing Boundaries to Create Common Ground.
In probing the questions of peace and conflict, the Forum is not a “sit and listen” experience. During plenary sessions, attendees hear firsthand of the struggles and triumphs of Laureates and other internationally known keynoters. The dynamic Q&A following these presentations engages the global audience in the experience. Just as importantly, attendees participate in highly interactive break-out sessions dedicated to both policy and practice. Robust networking with other attendees from diverse backgrounds adds a highly individual dimension.
Law and Business Day - Friday, March 7th, 8:30 am - 5:30 pm (time subject to change)
Held at Augsburg College and the University of Minnesota West Bank, this day explores the relationship of the rule of law to human rights and world stability, as well as the role played by business in these arenas. Mr. Ian Bremmer, founder and president of Eurasia Group, will hold the afternoon Keynote address and the morning Keynote will be announced soon. There will be multiple dynamic break-out sessions in between the two Keynote addresses. During the noon hour, attendees network with friends over their own brown bags or at a local restaurant. Discount student price is available to currently enrolled undergraduate or graduate students.
