TED Talk, Jonas Gahr Støre: In defense of dialogue

In politics, it seems counterintuitive to engage in dialogue with violent groups, with radicals and terrorists, and with the states that support them. But Jonas Gahr Støre, the foreign minister of Norway, makes a compelling case for open discussion, even when values diverge, in an attempt to build greater security for all.

This speech by Jonas Gahr Støre, the foreign Minister of Norway is so powerful. It loosens the suppressed buttons that holds many parties from dialogue and negotiations. He gives a powerful insight on how dialogue and talking to parties in conflict can really help to make a change in the peace process. It is clear that there is no one sure way to mending conflict unless through constructive engagement in dialogue.
