Peace Direct founder Scilla Elworthy has just given a talk at TED-x in Exeter. In the talk, Scilla draws on stories from her inspirations such as Nelson Mandela and Aung San Suu Kyi and shares half a dozen methods she has identified that allow us to counter violence without having to resort to force, and argues that not only are they more humane, but are more effective too.
Scilla is founder of Peace Direct, and founder and Chair of Oxford Research Group. Previously, she was a consultant at UNESCO on women’s issues, a director of Minority Rights Group in France and she has worked for ten years in southern Africa. In May 2003 she was awarded the Niwano Peace Prize and has been nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize.Read more from Scilla Elworthy
