Towards a more just, secure, and peaceful world: Lessons from Albright and Axworthy

As the world grapples with a slew of challenges—yet another terrorist attack in Istanbul, the British public’s decision to leave the European Union, the greatest migration crisis it has ever known, and inadequate systems of governance to address such transnational dangers—three core themes come to the fore: justice, security, and rule of law.

Lloyd Axworthy, a former foreign minister of Canada, unpacked these complex and interconnected issues at the second annual Madeleine K. Albright Lecture on Global Justice. Highlighting Secretary Albright’s many contributions to advancing the concept of the Responsibility to Protect and the role of democratic institutions in assuring peace, Axworthy knits together seemingly disparate challenges facing the world today and offered a framework for addressing them couched firmly in the respect for basic human rights.
