“Peace should be built on education, respect and tolerance”

Miriam Estrada-Castillo written about in Forces of Change UNLIRECMiriam Estrada-Castillo, a visiting professor at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, has been featured in the second edition of the United Nations High Representative for Disarmament Affairs’ “Women as Forces of Change” publication.

The publication aims to put a spotlight on the important and invaluable work that women in Latin America and the Caribbean carry out in the field of disarmament.

The publication lauds Estrada-Castillo for having “dedicated over 30 years to creating and advocating for a culture of peace and non-violence in the world, and for respect for human rights, most of all of women and children.”

Estrada-Castillo says, “The current world situation forces us to rethink the current paradigms on social coexistence. Peace should be built on education, respect and tolerance as driving forces, rather than on arms or violence. A culture of peace is our only hope.”
