Federico Mayor discusses building a culture
of peace in a world of war
On Monday's Riz Khan we speak with Federico Mayor, the former head of the United Nation's Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), about building a culture of peace in a world of war.

A Spanish professor of biochemistry by trade, Mayor soon found himself serving in Spain's ministry of education.

From there he eventually went on to lead UNESCO for 12 years, breathing new life into the organisation and its mission to 'build a bastion of peace in the minds of all people'.

We speak to Mayor about the ideology of peace, how it can be translated into tangible actions and the challenges of the war in Iraq.
