Three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee Dr Scilla Elworthy looks at the forces that drive armed conflict and explains what can be done to build peace both locally and internationally.
Elworthy has costed a business plan for peace that shows war can be prevented for $2 billion. She argues that ordinary people can have a massive impact on making the world a more peaceful place and explains how they can do it.
Elsworthy has been nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize for her work with Oxford Research Group to develop dialogue between nuclear weapons policy-makers from across the world and their critics. She is founder of Peace Direct and co-founder of Rising Women Rising World and advised Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Sir Richard Branson on setting up The Elders group of global leaders working together for peace and human rights. Her TED talk on non violence has been viewed by over 1,700,000 people on TED and YouTube.
This event is part of a series on women in society sponsored by HSBC.
