This means, for example, basic services such as education, health, access to drinking water and electricity. In fact, to ensure that every citizen of the world, every citizen, can feel at ease. That's how we can co-construct human security and social justice.”

Nous pensons vraiment qu'il faut mettre l'homme, l'humain, au centre des politiques publiques pour apporter plus de solutions. C'est par exemple aux services de base l’éducation, la santé, l'accès à l'eau potable, à l'électricité. En fait, pour faire en sorte que chaque citoyen du monde, chaque citoyen, puisse se sentir à l'aise. C'est comme cela que nous pouvons co-construire la sécurité humaine et la justice sociale.
