On March 8, 2015, under the auspices of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, the Nobel Peace Prize Forum brought together scores of diplomats and civil society leaders to discuss “Inclusive and Sustainable Peacemaking and Peacebuilding.” Disarmament was the central focus of this year’s forum, which highlighted in particular the work of 2013 Nobel Laureate, The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).

On the concluding day of the Forum, GSI President Jonathan Granoff participated in a moderated panel of senior leaders in the field of disarmament, in an event titled “Toward Inclusive Disarmament: The Voices of Women and Civil Society.” For the panel, Mr. Granoff joined Ambassador Bonnie Jenkins, U.S. Department of State Coordinator for Threat Reduction Programs, and Paul Walker, Director of the Environmental Security and Sustainability program at Green Cross International.
