Johan Galtung—TRANSCEND: Methods and Solutions


AlternateFocus – TRANSCEND Media Service

Galtung’s approach to mediation offers concrete proposals to give all sides the sense that they are winners. In this interview he describes his methodology and offers solutions for peace in the Middle East and other areas of conflict (not to confuse with violence).

Johan Galtung, born in 1930 in Oslo, holds PhDs in mathematics and sociology and is founder of the TRANSCEND Network for Peace Development Environment.
