Kjell Bondevik, the former Norwegian prime minister, immersed himself into politics from an early age and has become a creative leader in global affairs.
He served two terms as prime minister of Norway from 1997 to 2000 and from 2001 to 2005.
His honest approach to issues was appreciated by the public, and is a trait that he continues to lead with in other international positions.
Since his retirement from national politics Bondevik has founded the Oslo Centre for Peace and Human Rights where he currently serves as president and addresses the challenges of world peace, human rights and inter-religious tolerance worldwide.
He says: "We all have values like human dignity, peace, justice and respect for the sacred in common, but we also have our differences. The goal is not to agree on everything, but try to find how we can live peacefully with disagreements."
