The Peace Corner Podcast

Dialogue in Mexico: The Antidote for Drug-Related Violence

For decades, Mexico has been embroiled in a deadly war on drugs. While the lens of the media remains focused on the government and infamous drug cartels, those striving for a better society remain invisible. It is time to change that.

For a new episode of the Peace Corner podcast, intern Amanda sat down with the President of SERAPAZ, Miguel Álvarez Gándara, a Mexican peacebuilder in heart and word. For over 40 years, he has been using mediation as his weapon of choice. So, how can dialogue serve as the antidote to the violence? How can we shift away from a culture of violence to one of peace?
