When the 2023 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded last year in December, the laureate Narges Mohammadi was not present. She has been imprisoned for many years for her work on human rights in Iran. Instead, her husband and two children received the prize on her behalf. Twenty years earlier, the Iranian lawyer Shirin Ebadi was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. After receiving the prize, she left her homeland for a life in exile.  

Together with journalist Gilda Hamidi-Nia and Mohammad Fazlhashemi, professor of Islamic theology and philosophy, Carin Klaesson from the Nobel Prize Museum, discusses the current situation in Iran. It will be a conversation about resistance, courage, and the undefeated hope for a better future.  

The discussion will be followed by a piano concert. The Stockholm-based pianist, composer and sound artist Hara Alonso wants to inspire her listeners to care for the world. Her latest album, Notions of hope (2023) invites the listener to a meditative listen that explores the concept of hope. 


This evening’s program consists of two acts and lasts for 90 minutes, including a 10-minute break.  

Conversation on stage 18:00 – 18:50  

Concert 19:00 – 19:30
