writers for peace

Boualem Sansal and Liao Yiwu are both world-class authors and peace-campaigners. One Algerian, the other Chinese, both have won the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. Liao Yiwu was an ‘ordinary’ poet, writer and musician until 1990, when he reluctantly became an important voice in China’s struggle for democracy. Boualem Sansal is seen as a persona non grata by the Algerian regime; by remaining in his homeland he puts his life at risk. In Brussels these writers will discuss the joint role politicians and writers can play in the name of peace and democracy.
