During fall, the Peace Institute’s popular lunch seminars will be organized just as previously at the hotel Arkipelag’s restaurant. The seminars are held in Swedish.
The first speaker in the fall is Katja Creutz, Doctor of Laws and Researcher in the Global Security Research Programme at the Finnish Institute of International Affairs. The 30 October she will talk about “North Korea behind the headlines“, with a particular focus on human rights issues and security politics.
On November 20, Tarja Cronberg will talk about current nuclear weapon issues, in particular how the Nordic countries relate to the UN Nuclear Prohibition Agreement. Tarja Cronberg holds a PhD in technology and economy, and has previously been a minister of the government and a member of parliament of Finland and a member of the European Parliament. She is also the chairperson of the Peace Union of Finland, and the representative in Finland for the ICAN network that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize of 2017.
The lunch seminars are held between 11.30 and 12.30, starting with a speech of about 30 minutes, after which the audience is welcome to comment and ask questions.
