To Walk The Talk

The Second World War…The small fishing port of Anzio, Italy…A child found lost on the beach in the heart of heavy bombing…Killed subsequently by an explosion from a shell, the historical chronicle reveals…

Bleeding bodies of small children lying on a carpet floor after a massacre in Al Houla, the news agencies report…

Three children have been killed in a shooting outside a Jewish school in Toulouse, south-west France, reports of a French media say…

14-year-old and his nine-year-old cousin lie in the medical tent of a boat arriving in the eastern city of Benghazi from the western city of Misrata. The boys were injured while playing close to unexploded munitions, which went off near them, a UNICEF reporter states…

Those are not simple stories.

What is the human cost of a conflict?

How are the international policy makers considering approaches to get engaged in states torn by conflicts?

How do we build peace?

How is the child’s, the woman’s, the disabled persons’, the citizens’ security an objective of the international dialogue?

How are human rights dramatically critical for the long-term sustainability of any society?

How broad is our range of taught or consciously selected values?

Those are not simple questions.

Recent OECD studies suggest that initiatives of international actors relevant to crisis prevention are often too isolated and their coverage too patchy that their effectiveness is mixed. We need to hit the ground running in planning those initiatives within a comprehensive strategy.

“Packages” of programs for conflict resolution tend to be out of vogue when local political realities scream for tailored solutions.

The tectonic shift that the world has undergone for scores of years now is already running the show in our lives. The ability of politicians and society to jointly design and follow a systemic approach to prevent risks and resolve conflicts will be the hallmark of coming years.
