​The Federal President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, visited PRIO this afternoon. 

​The purpose of his visit was a closed roundtable discussion with PRIO researchers on the topic of 'Diplomacy and Mediation in the Context of New Conflicts'.

It has been a great pleasure and honor to host President Steinmeier at PRIO, discussing how cutting-edge academic work can inform and aid policy.
