The Elders

Strategic Framework 2018-2022

This Strategic Framework (for 2018 to 2022) sets out the approach The Elders will take in pursuing the organisation’s mission:

The Elders will use their independence, collective experience and influence to work for peace, justice and human rights worldwide. Working both publicly and through private diplomacy, they will engage with global leaders and civil society at all levels to resolve conflict and address its root causes, to challenge injustice, and to promote ethical leadership and good governance.

The Elders are independent global leaders, brought together by Nelson Mandela, who offer their collective influence and experience to support peace building, help address major causes of human suffering and promote the shared interests of humanity.
