For fifteen years, Jean Ziegler has been devoting all his forces to the fight for the damned of the earth within the United Nations Organization. Successively Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, then Vice-Chairman of the Consultative Committee of the Human Rights Council, he has been fighting, as part of his many missions, against hunger and malnutrition, in favor of human rights and peace. Promethean fights punctuated by great successes... and by chess.
These are the moments he relates here, closer to the field, the backstage maneuvers, the deleterious action of the predators of globalized financial capitalism, anxious above all to maximize their profits. From defeat to victory, the implacable witness of the sordid game of the powerful of this world questions: how to go further, how to make sure that the utopia that Roosevelt and Churchill conceived, this organization likely to regulate the international conflicts and to assure the minimum vital to the peoples of the world, to be reborn from the state of paralysis into which it has fallen?
Paths of hope is ultimately a message of hope delivered by the fighter of always at the end of a vibrant and committed story.
