Can we build “common security” for the 21st century?
On April 28, the 40th anniversary of the Palme Commission’s Common Security report which played a major role in ending the Cold War, The Olaf Palme Foundation, the International Peace Bureau, and the International Trade Union Confederation will issue their 21st Century Common Security Report.
PeaceQuest is cosponsoring this distinguished panel to discuss the report, which provides a critique and a roadmap for a common security future.
“International Security must rest on a commitment to joint survival rather than a threat of mutual destruction.”Palme Commission Report 1982
Coming midst the disastrous Ukraine War, the shattering of the Post-Cold War order, and the climate emergency and inequalities, the 21st Century Common Security Report provides a critique and a roadmap for a common security future, based on the reality that security cannot be achieved against a nation’s rival, but only with it.
