Crossing Boundaries to Create Common Ground

The 26th annual Nobel Peace Prize Forum will take place March 1 and 7-9 in Minneapolis, on the campuses of Augsburg College and the University of Minnesota West Bank.

The Nobel Peace Prize Forum is a unique civic learning experience. This dynamic, public, global event brings Nobel Peace Prize winners, civic leaders and scholars together with students and other citizens. As the Norwegian Nobel Institute’s only such program or academic affiliation outside of Norway, the Forum has a special mission: to inspire peacemaking by celebrating the work of Peace Prize winners.

The 2014 Forum is comprised of four different events, each of which will have a separate ticket:

  • March 1: Faith and Peace Day
  • March 7: Law and Business Day
  • March 8: Science and Health Day
  • March 9: Global Day

One highlight of Law and Business day is the session, “Inspiring Peacemaking in Tomorrow's Leaders,” moderated by Christopher Michaelson, Ph.D., associate professor of ethics and business law from the University of St Thomas. Panelists include:

  • Tim Ketcher, an adjunct faculty member in the Ethics & Business Law Department, University of St. Thomas
  • Jack Nelson-Pallmeyer, associate professor of justice and peace studies, University of St Thomas
  • Lakeesha Ransom, dean, University of Toledo
  • Joe Underhill, associate professor of political science, Augsburg College
