Today's international security environment is undoubtedly complex. War, climate change, and the ongoing economic crisis are just some of the issues that pose a threat to global stability. International cooperation is needed to overcome these problems, and such cooperation must be truly representative of the new global order. The world is no longer a place where a handful of wealthy nations make decisions and the remaining states follow suit. Globalization has brought the world closer together and has given all states ĘC developed, emerging, and developing ĘC an influential voice.

The recent World Peace Forum in Beijing addressed the world's most pressing international security issues. Organized by Tsinghua University, the forum brought together top political leaders and distinguished academics to talk about the need for deeper and more effective cooperation in the realm of international security. The event marks the first time that a high-level non-governmental discussion on international security has been hosted in China.

So, what are the best means for dealing with international security issues in today's globalized world? And how does the past international security climate compare with that of the present?

Ni hao, you're listening to  People In the Know, bringing you insights into the headline news in China and around the world, I'm Zheng Chenguang in Beijing.

People in the Know's Autumn Szeliga sat down with Prof. Javier Solana, Former Secretary-General of NATO, current President of ESADEgeo, a renowned Spanish think tank, and Distinguished Fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC.
