Peace Research Endowment
Supporting the best in peace research
Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Leymah Gbowee and filmmaker Abigail Disney ("Pray The Devil Back To Hell", "Women, War and Peace") discuss the crucial role of peace negotiation and peace research in areas of conflict. Created for the Peace Research Endowment through the support of PRIO (Peace Research Institute Oslo), this video focuses on these important issues as well as the pivotal role women play in the peace processes throughout war torn regions around the world.

The Peace Research Endowment aims to enhance research-based knowledge on peace and war, to stimulate debate and inform policy, and ultimately to contribute towards the creation of a world in which violence is the exception and conflicts are resolved peacefully. Established in 2009, the Peace Research Endowment is a non-profit organization independent of political, religious, or national interests. The Endowment’s activities are directed principally toward the academic community, with an emphasis on research that informs the policy and practitioner communities. It aims to stimulate research cooperation internationally through funding projects and programs – first and foremost the activities of the Peace Research Institute Oslo.
