Nobel Prize-winning Malala Yousafzai will come to Norway on Monday to hold several political conferences, including a meeting with Secretary of State Henrik Toon of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In 2014, at the age of 17, Malala Yousafzai became the youngest Nobel laureate in history. She is coming to Norway with her husband at the invitation of conservative politician Amir Sheikh. According to NTB, she will meet several Norwegian politicians.

“A 30-minute meeting with Secretary of State Henrik Thune (AP) is planned. The theme is education,” Githabul Communications Advisor Ragnhild Simenstad told NTB.

Pakistan’s human rights activists are known for their fight over the right to education for girls and their efforts to improve women’s rights in Pakistan. These topics will probably be central to the meeting with Thune.

Taliban

According to Sheikh, Malala will also meet with Conservative Party (H) leader Erna Solberg on Monday.

When Solberg met with Yousafzai as Prime Minister last August, he discussed the position of girls and women’s education in Afghanistan after the Taliban came to power.

The Taliban representative was in Norway at the latest when he met the Norwegian Secretary of State in January this year. The meeting was criticized in several respects.

In addition, the Taliban broke promises during their January visit to Norway. At that time, the Taliban envoy promised that girls would be allowed to attend school, but since then it has decided that it does not apply to girls over the age of 12.

Supported Thunberg

Yousafzai was in Sweden on Friday and participated in Greta Thunberg’s climate change protest outside Riksdag. She talked about “millions of girls losing access to school” as a result of climate-related events.

“Events such as droughts and floods have a direct impact on schools, and some of these events cause relocation,” she said.

“And that’s why it’s the girls that have been hit the hardest. They lost school first (education) and finally returned (to school),” she said.

Shot the head

Malala was shot at the age of 15 by Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, a Pakistani branch of the Taliban in Afghanistan, on her way home from school in Swat Valley, Pakistan.

She survived and went to Birmingham, where she was treated. After that, her family continued. Since then, she has studied philosophy, politics, and economics at Oxford University.

Amir Sheikh established a dialogue for the Peace Foundation. He resigned as the leader of Stoffner Hoia in Oslo shortly before the turn of the year after many important articles were published in Dagbladet. According to the newspaper, the Muslim World League (MWL), an organization based in Saudi Arabia, has paid millions of kroner for dialogue for peace.
