Moderator: Mary Robinson

Leadership in the peaceful resolution of conflict requires both an understanding of differences and an appreciation of our common humanity. It combines a sense of responsibility for others with faith in the power of individuals to shape institutions and create positive change. It also requires working with others to share efforts, create new possibilities, and bridge differences. In this inspiring dialogue, four Nobel Peace Laureates – including the Dalai Lama, Jody Williams, Mairead Maguire and Betty Williams – will discuss their own motivations, their experiences of connecting for change, and their perspectives on our human responsibilities at the present time.
