“A peace process is not about the mathematics of numbers and percentages in relation to who is in majority or minority. It is about plurality, diversity, participation and ownership of all affected by the conflict and who live in the context hence nothing less than full participation and ownership.” (Right Livelihood Award acceptance speech, Dec. 7, 2007; photo hiiraan.com)
