Global Leaders on Shared Security
edited by Ru Freeman and Kerri Kennedy

6" x 9" • 320 pages
ISBN 9781623719722 • paperback • $25.00


A world-renowned cast of writers—from esteemed peacemaker Archbishop Desmond Tutu to the twenty-eight year old UN Secretary General’s Envoy for Youth, Jayathma Wickramanayake, and award-winning novelist and creator of Narrative 4, Colum McCann—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. 

Contributors include: Andrei Gómez-Suárez • Andrés Álvarez Castañeda • Ashutosh Varshney • Aye Sandar Chit • Azza Karam • Brian Ganson • Cindy & Craig Corrie • Colum McCann • Desmond Tutu • Diana Francis • George Lakey • Hajer Sharief • Hussein Murtaja • Jacinda Ardern • Jason Tower • Jayathma Wickramanayake • Jimmy Carter • John Freeman • John Paul Lederach • Joyce Ajlouny • Kessy Martine Ekomo-Soignet • Khaled Mansour • Khine Thurein • Khury Petersen-Smith • Lana Baydas • Li Yingtao • Lucy Roberts • Malual Bol Kiir • Maria J. Stephan • Matilda Flemming • Maya Tudor • Nancy Lindborg • Nigel Nyamutumbu • Raja Shehadeh • Saba Ismail • Scilla Elworthy • Sue Williams • Terri-Ann P. Gilbert-Roberts • Thevuni Kotigala • Victor Ochen
