The fight against radicalization and religious intolerance should not only rely on security and military measures. We need to encourage an inclusive political process, and we need comprehensive economic development strategies to win the hearts and minds of the people. We also need to work with courageous religious figures and preachers.

Without the assurance of security, there can never be peace. The security of every human being is constantly being threatened by lack of food, economic instability, wars and nuclear threats, terrorism, climate change, gender inequality and many other global problems.

When we talk about discrimination, usually it means some limitation on rights and freedoms of people or social minorities on certain grounds (by sex, race, religion etc.). Nevertheless, there is discrimination connected not only to some people or social minorities, but to countries as well.

The only road to peace is to strive for justice for all human beings, nationally and internationally, at all costs. Unless we set this as our ultimate goal, our aims to achieve international peace and harmony will only hang by a thread.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is an honor for me to receive the Sunhak Peace Prize, particularly in times increasingly marked by war and violence, when speaking of peace is perceived as unrealistic and utopian. I wish to thank Rev. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon for devoting their lives to achieving universal peace and promoting the fundamental values of peace, dialogue and cooperation in the name of the human family.

People in conflict zones want and need help, but they do not need organizations telling them what to do or offering solutions that do not work. They need to know that people respect and care for them enough to listen to their struggles and concerns and to learn what it is they need for their situation to improve. So we ask questions that will help our staff understand their immediate needs: What do you need? Do your teachers need training? Do you need books, sewing classes or healthcare? What are your long-term goals?

Today Taiwan is committed to proactively fulfilling its obligations under international human rights law. In 2000, the Control Yuan set up a “Human Rights Protection Committee.” The main functions of this Committee are to uncover and investigate cases involving human rights violations, to recommend appropriate acts concerning human rights, to monitor the implementation of international human rights norms by different levels of governments, to coordinate with domestic and international human rights groups, to hold workshops on human rights matters, and to publish thematic human rights investigation reports.

Countries with a higher level of income still have internal conflicts, which are deeply rooted in poor human development. If we fail to foster human development, which is different from the concept of human resource development, we will not achieve security and sustainable peace in the world.

I believe it is important to recognize that the 21st century is the age of balance. The struggle for balance is being waged on an international, state and individual level, between dichotomies of competing value. They include development vs. environmental protection, globalization vs. regionalization, high-tech information vs. individual privacy…and even national interests vs. international interests.
