The conference, organised by the ECSSR in cooperation with the William S Cohen Centre for International Policy and Commerce, University of Maine, focused on such topics as social implications of globalisation, immigration and migration challenges, the security dimension and global responsibilities.
Speaking on terrorism during the concluding session, Sebestyen Groka, Executive Director of Institute of the Transitional Democracy and International Security (ITDIS), said, "Today the world is divided. Nations such as the US and its close allies see the strategic landscape as dominated by the existential and global threat of fundamental terrorism. These nations believe in the use of military force and aggressive law enforcement and intelligence operations to destroy such organisations."
About the dialogue with the East and Muslims in the West, Groka said, "A dialogue is very important between the East and the West. And also, we have to keep the links with the Muslims in our societies and should integrate the Muslims communities in the West to the societies."
"And for Bin Laden, there is no way for dialogue. Because he has made it clear that he will use weapons of mass destruction (WMDs)," he added.The conference also discussed containing the spread of WMDs. Dr Mohammad Kadry Saeed, Military Advisor at Al Ahram Centre for Political and Strategic Studies, said, "The spread of WMDs, their delivery system and related materials and technologies represent a fundamental threat to global security and peace."
