Small UN of Trastevere? Italian formula for conflict resolution? Parallel diplomacy? The definitions of the Community of Sant'Egidio for its international peace-making activities are various. Balzan Prize for Peace and Unesco Prize for Peace, at the forefront in many hot areas of the planet: here is the story of how the Community of Sant'Egidio has become a decisive subject in the solution of civil wars and international conflicts. The book presents an analysis of the main peace initiatives of Sant'Egidio. From Mozambique to Algeria, from Guatemala to Burundi, from Albania to Kosovo, from Liberia to the Ivory Coast, from Central Africa to Togo, from Guinea Conakry to Niger, to the commitment - no less pacifying - to defeat AIDS in Africa and to eliminate the death penalty in the world, pages of history flow with a common message: peace is always possible and everyone, really everyone, can contribute to it.
