As the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice celebrates 10 years of peacebuilding work, we are honored to present a distinguished lecture by Johan Galtung, PhD, of Norway, one of the founders of peace studies as an academic discipline. Galtung’s academic career spans more than 40 years during which he has been a visiting professor at 30 schools on five continents.

Galtung is the founder of TRANSCEND, a global peace, development and environment network, and TRANSCEND Peace University. He founded the world's first peace research institute in Oslo in 1959 and the Journal of Peace Research in 1964. He has published over 1,500 articles and more than 140 books, with translations into 33 languages, some of which are used in the curriculum of the MA program in Peace and Justice Studies at the Joan B. Kroc School of Peace Studies.

Beyond the academy, Galtung has been a consultant to the United Nations and mediated in over 100 international conflicts. His dedication to peace has been recognized with 10 honorary doctorates and the Right Livelihood Award, Norwegian Literary Prize and other awards.
