YouTube channel of the Chancellor Willy Brandt Foundation

Berit Reiss-Andersen is the Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee in Oslo. Fifty years after Willy Brandt was awarded the prize, she talks about today’s challenges to make the world more peaceful. Her starting point is the tribute to the then German Chancellor Brandt. “In a spirit of goodwill,” the Oslo Committee justified its decision in 1971, Willy Brandt had “made an outstanding effort to create conditions for peace in Europe.” In fact, as we know in retrospect, his commitment to peace policy led to détente with the New “Ostpolitik” and, in the long-term, to the overcoming of the supposedly irrevocably hardened fronts of the Cold War. And today? Which commitment and which ideas are important today to defuse seemingly insoluble crises and conflicts?
