Johan Galtung, dr, dr hc
mult, a professor of peace studies, was born in 1930 in Oslo, Norway.
He is a mathematician, sociologist, political scientist and the
founder of the discipline of peace studies. He founded the
International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (1959), the world's
first academic research center focused on peace studies, as well as
the influential Journal
of Peace Research
(1964). He has helped found dozens of other peace centers around the
world. He is currently the president of the Galtung-Institut for Peace Theory & Peace Practice.

thousands of individuals and motivated them to dedicate their lives
to the promotion of peace and the satisfaction of basic human needs.
He has mediated in over 150 conflicts between states, nations,
religions, civilizations, communities, and persons since 1957. His
contributions to peace theory and practice include conceptualization
of peace-building, conflict mediation, reconciliation, nonviolence,
theory of structural violence, theorizing about negative vs. positive
peace, peace education and peace journalism. Prof. Galtung's unique
imprint on the study of conflict and peace stems from a combination
of systematic scientific inquiry and a Gandhian ethics of peaceful
means and harmony.
Johan Galtung has conducted a great deal of research in many
fields and made original contributions not only to peace studies but
also, among others, human rights, basic needs, development
strategies, a world economy that sustains life, macro-history, theory
