Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Trondheim, Norway - Initiate

The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NIIA) is a Norwegian research institution situated in Oslo. The Norwegian Parliament established it in 1959.

In 1959, the Norwegian Parliament established the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) to develop a better understanding of international affairs in Norway. NUPI has worked toward this goal by conducting a variety of research projects and distributing knowledge on international concerns. NUPI is a leader among Norwegian institutes that do international affairs research on issues that directly affect Norwegian foreign policy and economic connections.

NUPI’s independence from Norwegian foreign policy is ensured by its subordination to the Ministry of Education rather than the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, despite the fact that it was formerly wholly funded from the state budget (distinguishing it from its counterparts in Sweden and many other countries). The institute as a whole has never taken a policy position on current topics, instead relying on the expertise of its individual scholars.

Nonetheless, NUPI has tended to be viewed as similar to the administration’s views in the Norwegian political discourse and the wider Norwegian research community of international affairs, whether the government has been Labour or Conservative, center-left or center-right. Several of its directors, including John Sanness, Johan Jrgen Holst, and Jan Egeland, were notable Labour politicians. Anders C. Sjaastad, John Kristen Skogan, and Janne Haaland Matlary, three of the group’s other researchers, have all served in Conservative / center-right or centrist governments.
