Beyond Landmines: What’s Next for World Peace?
Events | Headline and Cultural Forums
Jody Williams received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1997 for her work to ban landmines through the International Campaign to Ban Landmines, which shared the Peace Prize with her that year. At that time, she became the 10th woman—and third American woman—in its almost 100-year history to receive the Prize. Like others who have seen the ravages of war, she is an outspoken peace activist who struggles to reclaim the real meaning of peace—a concept that goes beyond the absence of armed conflict and is defined by human security, not national security.
