Betty Williams and WCCCI team attended the 9th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates where the summit sessions touched upon the following questions:

1. How can we build peace through the safeguard of human rights?
2. What are the strategies to affirm the universalism of the fundamental rights?
3. How to ensure the defense of individual rights in today’s world?
4. How to foster the establishment of the democratic values worldwide?
5. How to make rights concrete by eliminating social and financial inequalities among people in our societies?

This Summit represented an opportunity for the Nobel Peace Laureates to elaborate strategies of international policies, which will be implemented to ensure a real observance of the principles, reflected in the Declaration.

The Summit also saw an emphasis by the world to once again ask for the release of Aung San Suu Kyi, with companies like Lancia joining the campaign.
