The Nobel Peace Prize 2018 is awarded to Nadia Murad and Dr. Denis Mukwege for their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict. To honor and celebrate this important acknowledgement, the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and the Centre for Global Health at UiO are co-hosting a seminar on sexual violence as a weapon of war, as a part of the Oslo Peace Days.
