Peace Studies Philosopher Johan Galtung Advises Tamils to Tell the Story with a Vision
Apr 6, 2014
Professor Johan Galtung, principal founder of peace and conflict studies, interviewed by Sasisthar Maheswaran.
Tamils should come out with a campaign of vision that doesn’t threaten anyone, especially the Sinhala Buddhists, Galtung underlined.
“It is by having a positive, constructive vision that doesn’t scare the others that you go forward. Tamils should cooperate with the media in making nonviolent protests very visible. You have to somehow make it a UN issue. And if you could make it a UN General Assembly issue, not a Security Council issue, it would be useful.”
