Video Interviews with Peacemaking Women - Quest for Peace

The Quest For Peace Series captured the thoughts of many inspired peacemakers, and in particular, a number of women that we have not heard enough from. Of special interest is the interview with Elise Boulding who sadly has just recently passed away after a long and full career as a peacemaker.  The Quest for Peace series of interviews, conducted between 1983 and 1985, was completed prior to the effects of glasnost and perestroika, and thus they provide an overview of issues involved in seeking peace in the nuclear age during the Cold War of the early 1980s. The interviewer, John Whiteley, is a Professor in the School of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine, with a research focus on the social ecology of peace, a safer nuclear world, international cooperation, and global peace and conflict studies.
