Product description


'Martti Ahtisaari is the only person I know who has successfully built peace on three different continents.' * Kofi A. Annan, Former UN Secretary-General, Nobel Peace Laureate and Chair of The Elders * 'Martti Ahtisaari has done important work to promote democracy, tolerance and open society in Europe and globally. His track record is remarkable and I am honored to support his efforts.' * George Soros, Chairman Soros Fund Management * 'Martti Ahtisaari's biography is an exciting account of an extraordinary life. It is a story of a person of modest background, a resolute visionary who by virtue of being born in a Nordic country was given an opportunity to make the most out of his skills. Martti Ahtisaari has become one of the leading peace mediators of our time, and an Ambassador of egalitarian thinking. He is a tireless advocate for giving everyone, girls and boys, an equal opportunity in life.' * Gro Harlem Brundtland, First woman Prime Minister of Norway * 'Martti Ahtisaari personified Socrates's ideal of a citizen of the world. Not only did he lead his own brave, admirable, and highly globalized nation - he helped prove that the European Union could engage in effective diplomacy. His work as a peacemakers continues even as he gives us, in The Mediator, a compelling, insightful autobiography of one of the great statesmen of our time.' * Strobe Talbott, President of the Brookings Institution *

Product Description

Martti Ahtisaari is the world's most renowned and successful mediator in international conflicts. In 2008 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his lead role in bringing independence to Namibia, Serbia's withdrawal from Kosovo, the decommissioning of weapons in Northern Ireland and autonomy for Aceh in Indonesia. Ahtisaari's range of international contacts and global experience are remarkable and his is the name which is still most often mentioned when the world looks for an individual to try to broker a peace deal.

Ahtisaari also served for six years as President of Finland, the first holder of that office to be directly elected. Upon leaving office, he founded Crisis Management Initiative, an international NGO specialising in conflict resolution and development issues. The Mediator is an authorized biography, based on extensive interviews with Ahtisaari himself as well as his family, friends and colleagues.
