Interview with Prof. Johan Galtung and Amb. Alvaro de Soto. Washington-DC, Nov 16 2009.

In a world of war and conflict, is the idea of waging peace naive? Riz Khan talks to two of the world’s leading voices on conflict resolution, Johan Galtung and Alvaro de Soto.

Galtung, a Norwegian mathematician and sociologist, is also one of the founders of conflict resolution studies – defining the concept of ‘positive peace’.

De Soto, a 25-year veteran of the UN, served as a special envoy for Myanmar, the Middle East peace process and as an adviser on Cyprus.
