Jean Ziegler, a portrait
He is regarded as the voice of the poor and feared by those in power. With his books „Switzerland washes whiter“, „The Empire of Shame“ or „The Hatred of the West“, he has caused many controversies in the western world and has brought some uncomfortable truths to a wide audience. Prof. Jean Ziegler is a Swiss sociologist, politician and non-fiction author. He was the United Nation‘s special correspondent for the right to food until 2008, and today is a member of the UN Human Rights Council and has been honoured with various awards and honorary doctorates.
