The Elders are an independent group of global leaders working together for peace and human rights.
The Elders represent an independent voice, not bound by the interests of any nation, government or institution.
We are committed to promoting the shared interests of humanity, and the universal human rights we all share.
We believe that in any conflict, it is important to listen to everyone - no matter how unpalatable or unpopular this may be.
We aim to act boldly, speaking difficult truths and tackling taboos.
We don’t claim to have all the answers, and stress that every individual can make a difference and create positive change in their society.
