“It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it.
And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”
WELCOME | our work
The Oslo Center for Peace and Human Rights – US Foundation (OCUSF) pursues three core pillars: Dialogue, Democracy, and Human Rights. We believe these are essential to achieving peaceful conflict resolution and understanding within and between the people, cultures, and religions of the world. The OCUSF works locally with other foundations and organizations to assist in developing model peace initiatives, dialogues, and programs with the goal of transporting these models nationally and internationally.
The OCUSF was established in 2008 to support the ideals and goals of the Oslo Center in Norway, founded in 2006 by former Prime Minster of Norway Kjell Magne Bondevik. We are headquartered in Minnesota, a state with Norwegian roots, a legacy of peace and progressiveness, and a globally diverse population, and are a US platform for peace-making initiatives that have global implications. Our mission is to promote peace initiatives through intercultural and interfaith dialogues in order to help prevent conflicts throughout the world.
GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING IN THE WORLD. YOU CAN BE PART OF IT.
