Johan Galtung—TRANSCEND: Methods and Solutions
TRANSCEND VIDEOS, 4 Nov 2019
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 areas of conflict (not to confuse conflict with violence, or peace with absence of violence or a ceasefire).
Johan Galtung, a professor of peace studies, dr hc mult, is founder of TRANSCEND International and rector of TRANSCEND Peace University. He was awarded among others the 1987 Right Livelihood Award, known as the Alternative Nobel Peace Prize. Galtung has mediated in over 150 conflicts in more than 150 countries, and written more than 170 books on peace and related issues, 96 as the sole author. More than 40 have been translated to other languages, including 50 Years-100 Peace and Conflict Perspectives published by TRANSCEND University Press. His book, Transcend and Transform, was translated to 25 languages. He has published more than 1700 articles and book chapters and over 500 Editorials for TRANSCEND Media Service.
