The following call — “Convoke an International Conference to Establish a New Security and Development Architecture for All Nations” — circulated as a petition in eleven languages worldwide since February 23 by the Schiller Institute, is being released today with an initial sampling of 127 prominent signers from 32 countries (see the complete list below), a representative group of the thousands who have endorsed the call.

In the context of the huge strategic and economic crisis worldwide, the Schiller Institute and the signers demand an urgent mobilization to “convoke an international conference along the lines of the Peace of Westphalia…to ensure that the central economic and security interests of each” and all nations are addressed.
