Resolving Global Conflicts without Violence – Part 1, By Joris Voorhoeve, Professor Emeritus International Organizations, Former Cabinet Minister of The Netherlands

Mahatma Gandhi, who we honour this year, 150 years after his birth,  remains a shining example of the power of non-violent conflict resolution. In 2013, I visited the Gandhi Museum in New Delhi. I was struck in particular by a cartoon on the wall near the end. Martin Luther King had been drawn standing next to Mahatma Gandhi, who was sitting on the ground. Gandhi looked up to King and said: You know, the funny thing with assassins is that they think they killed us.
