The closing speech at the 'Democratic Security in a Time of Extremism and Violence' conference

The closing speech at the 'Democratic Security in a Time of Extremism and Violence' conference

We have gathered here to discuss one of the most troubling issues of our times, forced upon democratic societies and decent people everywhere by the rampant extremism and the violence and terrorism that it begat. We sought to bring to bear the wisdom of experienced leaders, the judgment of people of political talent who have been recognized and elected by fellow-citizens, and have proven worthy of their trust, and people who have earned the respect of the international community.

Facing Facts: What’s Wrong with the Current World Order!

NGIC-CdM meeting in Andorra

We are gathered here today at a critical moment in world history. The world order that had so patiently been erected in the last half century has become unraveled. It is not the end of history as Fukuyama claimed, nor is it the clash of civilizations as Huntington believed… it is much worse.
