Peace, stability and security

The security challenges facing the world are becoming increasingly complex. Norway will meet these challenges through its strong commitment to NATO, its broad engagement in peace and reconciliation efforts and through international cooperation.

The situation in our neighbouring areas and in Europe’s neighbourhood has become more difficult. The constellation of actors is now more complex, and conflicts are spreading across borders. International terrorism, organised crime and cyber threats are creating new challenges.

Our membership of NATO and our transatlantic ties are the cornerstone of Norwegian foreign and security policy. In addition, Norway is strengthening the European and Nordic dimension in its security policy by developing closer security policy cooperation with selected European allies.

The UN and the legal order that the UN plays such a key role in upholding are of crucial importance for Norway. Norway participates actively in the UN and wants to take its share of the responsibility. That is why Norway is seeking a seat on the UN Security Council for the period 2021-2022.

Engagement in peace and reconciliation efforts are a key part of Norwegian foreign policy. Norway works actively to find lasting political solutions to wars and conflicts by facilitating dialogue between parties to conflict and supporting other actors’ conflict resolution efforts.

Norway promotes balanced, mutual, irreversible and verifiable nuclear disarmament. This is in line with our values, interests and international obligations. 

Norway also attaches importance to using development policy tools to address global security challenges.

O trabalho da Noruega como facilitador

A Noruega atuou como facilitador nas negociações que levaram a um acordo de paz com as FARC-EP na Colômbia em 2016. A Noruega também é facilitador oficial nos processos de paz com o grupo guerrilheiro do ELN na Colômbia e o movimento comunista NDFP nas Filipinas. Além disso, a Noruega facilitou conversas discretas entre partes que ainda não chegaram à mesa de negociações.
