The Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue is based in Lillehammer, a city with a rich variety of institutions.The center evolved from its humble pioneer beginnings in 1995 to become an international hub for dialogue work, with more than 20 years of experience in exploring methodologies and implementing dialogue projects. Our activities have catalysed actions by others, such as the creation of Nansen Centers in the Balkans, and individual dialogue projects in many countries and regions, including Norway.
We are funded through the national state budget, project funding, private donations and sponsors. We’re more than happy to accept donations to support our work both in Norway and abroad. There are several options available to sponsors. It is possible to offer donations to both separate projects and a more general contribution which will be applied according to need. Donors will be informed of how their gifts have been applied.
Please use the donor-button below, or alternatively call us or send an email to discuss further options.
The Nansen Center team have undergone several structural changes during this time, the most important through a merging in 2010 of the Nansen Dialogue and the Norwegian Peace Center. Read more about our team members here.
We have carried out a variety of peacebuilding and dialogue projects around the world. You can find more information on our projects here.
