Responding to international security threats

Jean-Marie Guéhenno, President of the International Crisis Group will speak on "Reconfiguring the international response to rising security threats", at the Australian National University in Canberra, 5:45pm, 17 February 2015. 
"Increasing geopolitical competition is amplifying international conflict and diminishing the global community’s ability to respond to rising distributed threats like extremism and post-authoritarian chaos. The international community needs to get back to basics: supporting the long, hard slog of institution-building in transitional countries; addressing the social and political problems that provide the fertiliser for radical movements; and recognising that we are unlikely to solve conflicts if we only talk to people who agree with us."
