Together with 29 former Peace Prize laureates this outstanding group of international scholars gathered in Oslo on December 6, 2001, for the three-day Nobel Centennial Symposium on "The Conflicts of the 20th Century and the Solutions for the 21st Century." Counting some of the world's leading historians, anthropologists, economists, and political scientists, the conference offered a unique opportunity to discuss why the 20th century was ridden by so much conflict and how the 21st century may become a more peaceful one.
