Global leaders and activists writing about what they understand shared security to be.More than forty global leaders and activists reflect on the state of the world, and the indivisibility of lasting peace and security. From renowned peacemaker Archbishop Desmond Tutu to the twenty-eight year old UN Secretary General?s Envoy for Youth, Jayathma Wickramanayake, from UK Minister of Parliament Caroline Lucas to IMPAC Dublin Literary Award winner and creator of Story4, Colum McCann, a world-renowned cast of writers disavow the notion of security as stemming from walls, x-ray machines, armed security forces, and other militarized means of separating one population or group from another, refuse to identify particular groups or demographics as threats to other groups, and redefine security as being inclusive and egalitarian. Taken together these global citizens articulate a persuasive and powerful argument in favor of a new way of looking at a world where we reframe security as a shared goal. This is an exceptional compilation of voices whose places of origin reflect the world of which they speak, and who, in chorus, become a testament to the fact that we can come together, no matter how far-flung we are, how solitary our endeavors, to shape our common future.
