Obituary of Johan Galtung on The Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO)

Johan Galtung, who passed away on February 17, 2024, was born on the same day as the founding of the United Nations, which symbolized his international orientation. He played a significant role in establishing the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and the Journal of Peace Research. Galtung's scholarly contributions covered topics such as structural violence, peace concepts, imperialism, and non-violence, often collaborating with Arne Næss on Gandhi's ideas about non-violence and conflict management.
