In 2005, the Safe Democracy Foundation, which I manage and together with the Club de Madrid, organized the International Summit on Democracy, Terrorism and Security at the Palacio de Congresos in Madrid, Spain.
The results of this Summit can be found in our blog. For the second anniversary, we have decided to transform the contents of last year’s Summit – the materials are mainly focused on how democracies can efficiently combat terrorism without losing their democratic spirit – into a blog.
During the past few days, very interesting people have collaborated with us and published articles in the blog. I would like to invite all of you to read them. Some of these people include George Soros, Walid Salem, Giandomenico Picco, Javier Rupérez and others. Some of the articles are written in English, while others are written in Spanish.
Safe Democracy’s blog will remain open in 2006, and other important contributors will post articles about the strengthening of democracies and conflict resolution.
