'The Just Governance for Human Security conference was unique in its ability to bring together diversity or cultural and professional backgrounds to tackle contemporary challenges. The unparalleled sense of community at this conference, allows for unfiltered and respectful dialogue. The spirit of camaraderie among participants gives me hope that just governance is achievable within our lives.
