Rapporteur Report

Project: International Security Department

Rapporteur: Alex Jack
This is a summary of a conference which sought to investigate the ability of – and the opportunity for – countries from the Euro-Atlantic area to engage with other global players through cultural dialogue in order to effectively manage security risks.
  • It was noted that meaningful dialogue is often inhibited or obfuscated by Western attempts to 'universalize' their values.
  • Participants considered whether the financial crisis has undermined much of what the West has achieved in terms of economic integration and the export of its own model of liberal democracy.
