Oscar Arias Sánchez, two-time President of Costa Rica, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1987 for negotiating peace in Central America. The “Arias Plan” called on the leaders in the region to limit the size of their armies, assure freedom of the press and hold open elections. He also made efforts to protect the environment, battle poverty and improve education for the people.
Today Arias’ work focuses on peace, justice, and disarmament and tackles challenging social problems such as the trafficking of drugs, arms, women and children.
