Just Governance for Human Security                          

Trust building: the critical factor for sustainable peace

Trust building consistently emerges as the critical aspect needed to advance human security on all levels. This year, the focus will be on three human security pillars: good governance, social inclusion and healing memory. These three areas are particularly in need of focused attention given the increase in tension, conflict and uncertainty in the international political climate.

We will, as in previous years, link these to the Sustainable Development Goals with a particular focus on the following: Reduced inequalities (goal 10), Gender equality (goal 5) and Partnership for the goals (goal 17).



Who is this event for?

The event is for representatives in the private, public and civil society sectors who have a focus on human security. It will be of particular interest for:

  • Policy makers
  • Activists
  • Community leaders
Why this event?

The objective of this time together is to explore options for tackling the root causes of mistrust related specifically to good governance, social inclusion and healing memory. There will be opportunity to create new networks and peer-to-peer mentoring for participants to strengthen and expand their work and projects after their time in Caux. This will happen through dialogue, reflection, personal interaction and active listening in small ‘community groups’.



What past participants say

Attending Just Governance for Human Security, provided me with the opportunity to collaborate with people across the world.  It was invaluable.  This forum enabled balanced dialogue on global issues as they relate to race, safety, police interactions, and immigration. Peaceful governance is a universal desire and finding real, effective and humane solutions that address police and immigrant engagement are imperative.

The most amazing and enduring aspect of the Just Governance for Human Security is its thrust on serving others, action and change and the role of the individual in influencing that change. These factors have influenced my work in Zimbabwe where I work in communities ravaged by destructive mining.

Set in one of the most spectacular venues I have ever seen, the Just Governance for Human Security gathering was amazing professionally and personally. Professionally because I networked with inspiring people who are making a palpable difference in the world. Personally because it was a kind of retreat offering time for reflection, renewal and reconfirmation of my commitment to human security.

Midway through the conference, one becomes totally immersed in the Caux magic that says we all have something to hear and to say to our global brothers and sisters. These conversations bring about a broader world view that there is much work to be done to bring about justice and equality for all.
