A conversation with Edelberto Torres Rivas on the 20th anniversary of Interpeace
Interpeace interviewed Edelberto Torres Rivas, a renowned sociologist. Rivas was also the Director of the Interpeace project in 1997 (at that time the War-torn Societies Project) in order to gauge the progress of social reconstruction. Rivas discusses how Interpeace has encouraged a dialogue aimed at bringing diverse Guatemalan political and social actors together. He also explains how both material reconstruction and national reconciliation are necessary for peace to be sustainable in Guatemala.
