      Jane Morrice: WhiteDoveWay is more than a path of peace

As the greatest peace project in modern history, the EU must use that experience to become the conflict prevention champion of the future. By promoting the principles of peace, tolerance and mutual respect on which it was founded the EU can show the WhiteDoveWay at home and abroad.
