Description

A Major Collection of Speeches by Nobel Laureate, Jose Ramos-Horta Includes a call-to-action on the key issues facing our world today The Twenty-first Century offers us a chance, a unique chance, to coalesce around common global interests - to reverse the nefarious consequences of climate change, manage clean water reserves that are becoming a rare commodity, save our polluted rivers, lakes, and seas, replenish the depleted fish stock, eliminate extreme poverty and hunger, and de-escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula and South China Sea, and between India and Pakistan, India and China. If we were to spend less on armament, we would be able to spend more on education, health, and food security for all. These are matters of survival for all and yet, to date, there has not been enough understanding of the urgency of addressing these challenges. Words of Hope in Troubled Times is a collection of my speeches and writings from 1992 to 2017. I hope this book will inform, increase understanding, and inspire a sense of urgency, for only when these challenges are understood and felt by all, will there be concerted global action. Jose Ramos-Horta This collection of speeches and writings includes Jose Ramos-Horta's most important speeches from 1992 to the end of 2017. Selected by His Excellency, the book includes the Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech, early speeches on peace in East Timor, and on critical international issues such as Guinea-Bissau, Myanmar, Iran, and North Korea. It also includes speeches relating to His Excellency's more recent work for the United Nations as the Chair of the High-Level Independent Panel on UN Peace Operations and his role on the UN's High-Level Advisory Board on Mediation.
