This past August, Beyond Conflict Co-Chair Tim Phillips participated in a panel with the Beyond Conflict Network member Roelf Meyer and moderated by former British diplomat Sir Kieran Prendergast. Held as part of Beyond Borders Scotland’s Books, Borders, and Bikes festival, the event included a number of prominent authors, artists, and policymakers. Roelf described his journey from a conservative student leader who thought apartheid was a good system, to one of the principal architects of its dismantling. Tim then shared Beyond Conflict’s mission and its history with Roelf – describing the crucial role Roelf played in catalyzing change in numerous countries. The video is worth watching in full, and is available below:
