How to reach a just and lasting peace in Ukraine: Sachs and the IPB
Last month the International Peace Bureau (IPB), the world’s oldest and largest peace network, asked noted American writer Jeffrey Sachs for his ideas about how to end the war in Ukraine.
Jeffrey D. Sachs is an American economist, academic, public policy analyst, and former director of The Earth Institute at Columbia University, where he holds the title of University Professor. He is known for his work on sustainable development, economic development, and the fight to end poverty.
In 2021, Sachs was appointed by Pope Francis to the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Within this role, Sachs has consistently pushed for a peaceful solution to the war in Ukraine, as exhibited in the statement titled “Reaching a Just and Lasting Peace in Ukraine” published by of the Science and Ethics of Happiness Study Group in June 2022.
