“These recommendations focus on two main areas:
# Conflict prevention and intervention in conflict environments; and
# Strengthened multilateralism (with particular reference to regional security organisations, nuclear non-proliferation, and global biosecurity).
Our report is both a warning and a call to action. We face serious and worsening international security challenges but provided we are willing to learn lessons, to change the way we think, to find the necessary political will and to adapt our policy solutions and instruments to new circumstances, there is much that can be done. We offer this interim report as a contribution to the necessary process of policy change that must now unfold.
