Johan Galtung (born 24 October 1930) is a Norwegian sociologist and a principal founder of the discipline of peace and conflict studies. Galtung was born in Oslo. He earned the Cand. Real. degree in mathematics (i.e. U.S. Ph.D. equivalent) at the University of Oslo in 1956, and a year later completed the Mag. Art. degree in sociology (i.e. U.S. Ph.D. equivalent) at the same university. Galtung received the first of seven honorary doctorates in 1975. Galtung's father and paternal grandfather were both physicians. The Galtung name has its origins in Hordaland, where his paternal grandfather was born. Nevertheless, his mother, Helga Holmboe, was born in central Norway, in Tr ndelag, while his father was born in stfold, in the south. Galtung has been married twice, and has two children by his first wife Ingrid Eide, Harald Galtung and Andreas Galtung, and two by his second wife Fumiko Nishimura, Irene Galtung and Fredrik Galtung, the co-founder and chief executive of Tiri.
