WITNESS AND COMMITMENT

Does commitment still exist? At a time of inhumanity, when 95% of wars target civilians, is witness still meaningful? Should one take risks and condemn?

The writer and journalist Olivier Weber, war correspondent for over twenty years, then French ambassador-at-large, campaigned on various topics: witness, denouncement of slavery and human trafficking.

Armed group specialist, then university lecturer, he reported on about twenty conflicts and spent time with about fifteen guerilla groups. He also started humanitarian missions in Afghanistan, Amazonia, Cambodia and this year in Iraq. His commitment includes literature and novels.
