Pax Forlag was founded in 1964 with the purpose of stimulating the new leftist movement in Norwegian sciences, culture and politics. The publishing house sprang out of Pax, a pacifist magazine published by the cross-party organization Folkereisning mot krig (the Norwegian division of War Resisters International) since 1962.

In the two first decades of its history, Pax played a vital role in the cultural and political development in Norway. Not only did it represent something that can be vaguely named the zeitgeist around the mid 60ies, Pax also added flavour and purpose to the development of both the cultural climate and politics in Norway for at least 15-20 years since. Both the national and the international publishing industry have undergone significant changes over the last few years, which Pax also has had to adjust to.

Having celebrated our 50th anniversary in 2014, Pax Forlag is a vital publishing house which produces fiction, non-fiction and academic literature of high standards.
