Panel Discussion at Nobel Institute in Oslo


On June 11, 2014 Berghof Foundation’s Executive Director, Hans J. Giessmann, participated in a panel discussion on the topic “Human Rights – Freedom – Security” at the Alfred Nobel Institute in Oslo, Norway.

During his presentation he focussed on the opportunities of facilitation and support in transformative peace processes. In the presence of the Norwegian King, Harald V., the German Federal President, Dr. h.c. Joachim Gauck, and members of the Nobel Institute’s Committee, he also took the opportunity to reflect briefly on the Berghof Foundation’s global engagement for conflict transformation.

Professor Giessmann had been invited by President Gauck to accompany his delegation on an official state visit to Norway.
