Boulding, Elise - Elise is a remarkable Quaker woman who has devoted her life to the study and practice of peace and non-violent conflict resolution.  She is a retired Sociology professor from Dartmouth College, former Secretary General of the International Peace Research Association, the author of many books on peace and in 1990 was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Often called the "matriarch" of the twentieth century peace research movement, she is relatively unknown outside  the circles of peace academics and Quakers.  At age 82 her voice is strong and committed to a vision of a world which builds on the best human tendencies. 
In Elise Boulding: Beacon for a Peaceful World, she talks about her experience as the daughter of Norwegian parents, which taught her the importance of living in two cultures, her lifelong partnership with renowned international economist, Kenneth Boulding, and her own career path which led her to write and teach about peace.  While chairing the department of sociology at Dartmouth, Elise was actively involved in establishing the United Nations University in Tokyo and was appointed as a commission member of UNESCO.  She remains a champion for the United Nations as a place where people from their local branches of citizen organizations can participate in creative problem-solving.  This video recently received an award for creative excellence from NewTV, Newton’s community cable station.
In 1995 she was the recipient of a Global Citizen Award by the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century.  A companion video: Elise Boulding: Global Citizen documents this ceremony, including a charming introduction by Dr. Kevin Clements, current Secretary General of International Alert, a London-based conflict transformation organization and former colleague in the International Peace Research Association.  Elise discusses her personal experience with both the "shadow" side of human history and the opportunity we have for creating a better world.
Both videos are 35 minutes in length and available in VHS format.  Each video is $15.00.

Cuny, Fred C. was killed in Chechnya in April 1995, trying to help mitigate the effects of Russian bombing on the civilian population of Grozny.     Cuny had worked on crises in over 50 countries.  Wherever he cast his attention, he demonstrated the value of sensitivity, initiative, courage, innovation, flexibility, and foresight, missing elements in most response.
