“I would say that this is above all a story of keeping personal relations alive, for decades, of watching with attention the international process and the crisis in the country, not forgetting the faith element in this, which is always important according to Sant’Egidio. and also to find a suitable space to play a positive role in a situation that was already very crowded, and with a lot of competition. As a final point, I would say never give up.”
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University recently published an interview by Katherine Marshall of Mauro Garofalo, Head of International Relations for the Community of Sant’Egidio.
The conversation spans Mauro’s personal relationship with the Community and Sant’Egidio’s longstanding commitment to peace and dialogue in the world. They especially focused on South Sudan, where Sant’Egidio has been active and leading the mediation processes.
