About Scilla Elworthy

Three-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee SCILLA ELWORTHY, PhD, founded the Oxford Research Group in 1982 to develop effective dialogue between nuclear weapons policy-makers worldwide and their critics. Their work included a series of dialogues between Chinese, Russian, and NATO nuclear scientists and the military, which formed the basis for later treaties. She founded Peace Direct in 2002 to fund, promote, and learn from local peace-builders in conflict areas, leading to the UN accepting the value and cost effectiveness of "locally-led" initiatives. Elworthy was awarded the Niwano Peace Prize in 2003. She was adviser to Peter Gabriel, Desmond Tutu, and Richard Branson in setting up The Elders and currently advises the boards of major international companies on future planning. She's chair of the Civil Society sector of the Hanwang Forum in China- a Councillor of the World Future Council- author of numerous books- a patron of Gender Rights and Equality Action Trust, MasterPeace, Oxford Research Group- and a member of the steering Committee of PAX, a service to help prevent wars and genocides. She received the Lifetime Achievement Award presented at the Voice of a Woman ceremony in July 2013.
