This conversation is hosted by the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict and Caux Forum for Human Security
Summary: Security is often seen in terms of defence: keeping the enemy out. But for ordinary people all over the world, security is much more than the absence of conflict: it involves food, shelter, opportunities and everything that makes for a stable and healthy life. The lack of these conditions often fuels conflict. The struggle for people-centred security rests on five pillars:
- living sustainably
- inclusive economics
- just governance
- healing memory
- intercultural dialogue
Speaker: Ambassador Mohammed Sahnoun, formerly special advisor to UN Secretary General Kofi Annan and chair of the Caux Forum for Human Security.
Come and take part in a conversation with Ambassador Sahnoun on how each of us can play a role. Professor Jennifer Welsh, co-director of the Oxford Institute for Ethics, Law and Armed Conflict, will respond to his comments. This will be followed by a chance to interact with Ambassador Sahnoun and other participants, over light refreshments.
