"International Law is the most important tool we have to preserve peace". These profound words were recently spoken by H.E. Luis Almagro, the Secretary General of the Organization of American States, on the occasion of the first edition of the Carnegie Peacebuilding Conversations. Mr. Almagro, the highest dignitary to attend the event, addressed an attentive audience and spoke about the shared history between the Peace Palace and the OAS. However, it did not take long before he addressed the elephant in the room: the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela.
