A Fireside Chat with Margaret MacMillan

Our Conversation During Peace Patron Investiture Ceremonies
Click image to see the video

I am delighted to bestow the Mosaic Institute’s 2020 Peace Patron award on Margaret MacMillan. This is the Institute’s highest honour, which we present annually to one person who has made a preeminent contribution to peace and intercultural understanding.

We selected Margaret for her extraordinary work as a historian and author. She has helped the world gain a more clear-eyed view of the arc of history itself, and has reinforced our shared creed that peace is more than just the absence of war - that it is instead the presence of dignity, justice, and humanity.

To respect physical distancing during the pandemic, we held her formal investiture as our Peace Patron online.

This video is of our live “fireside conversation” about why states have wandered onto the path of war, and how they have succeeded or failed to find the way to peace. We also took questions from the audience.

Margaret is the Mosaic Institute’s seventh Peace Patron, joining John de Chastelain, Edward Burtynsky, Naheed Nenshi, Senator Murray Sinclair, Louise Arbour, and Hugh Segal.
