Shaukat Aziz (Exclusively WSB)

Age-old conflict in the Middle East and parts of Asia continue to derail a focus on the other issues that plague the region including poverty, hunger, disease, and illiteracy. To truly tackle the systemic challenges of the region, tensions must first be reduced and countries must join together for a common purpose. As the prime minister of Pakistan, Aziz worked closely with leaders of other countries on peace, security and economic prosperity. In this enlightening presentation the prime minister will underscore the need for:

  • An assessment of the current events of the regions and what core issues must be addressed
  • A renewed commitment to regional peace, security and economic prosperity
  • How Pakistan must serve as a key player as a major Muslim country, which can be a stabilizing influence for the entire Muslim world and the world at large.
  • Root Causes of Terrorism and Possible Solutions
  • Bridging the Gaps Between Faiths and the Need for Promoting Interfaith Harmony

José María Aznar (Exclusively WSB)

From his unique perspective as Spain’s prime minister from 1996 to 2004, José María Aznar explores how, over the past year, the promise and great expectations of “the Arab Spring” have turned into a new and less optimistic reality—“the Arab Winter.” Aznar shares with his audiences his concerns for the future of the region and the interests of the West. He looks at the long neglect of pro-Western groups in North Africa and the Gulf as the West sought to avoid friction with existing rulers, creating contradictory political and military strategies among those nations. The formulation of “an approach that is not shortsighted or naïve” is, he believes, essential—that if the West applauds everything, it will fail to establish positive relations with emerging regimes.
