Peace First by Uri Savir

Book Description

In this groundbreaking new guide to building peace, international ambassador Uri Savir exposes the deadly ironies and anachronisms in contemporary efforts to solve global conflicts, and presents a radical new model for modernizing our efforts to build real and lasting peace, from the ground up. Peace First draws on Savir's own deep, first-hand experiences from the Oslo Peace Process, as well as his peace-building efforts between enemies and former enemies in the African nations of Ethiopia, Eritrea, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone, the European regions of Northern Ireland and the Former Yugoslavia, and in Asia, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan.

Author Biography - Uri Savir

Ambassador Uri Savir has spent his professional life on the frontline of peace-making in Israel. As Director-General of the Foreign Ministry between 1993 and 1996, Savir served as Israel's Chief Negotiator for the Oslo Accords, as a member of the Israeli Negotiations Delegation with Jordan, and as head of the Negotiation Delegation with Syria in 1995-1996. As a second generation diplomat, Savir was Shimon Peres' right-hand man for many years, Director of the Israeli Consulate in New York, and later as Member of Israeli Parliament, he was head of the Sub-Committee for Foreign Affairs. In 1996, he established the Peres Center for Peace which encourages regional peacebuilding initiatives, over which he presides today. In 2001, Savir established a Rome-based international non-profit organization called Glocal Forum, which encourages intercity diplomacy around the world.
