Lord John Alderdice is the president of Liberal International, the global network of liberal political parties. He hails from Northern Ireland, where he was at the helm of the Alliance Party for many years. He also served as speaker of the Northern Ireland Assembly and on the independent Monitoring Commission, which is charged with looking after paramilitary activities and security normalization in Northern Ireland. As Lord Alderdice explains in his speech, terrorism in various parts of the world has similar roots and causes. Therefore, also from a liberal vantage point, the answers to this global challenge should be similar. Once more the program is hosted by Alexandra Cuyegkeng and Ronald Meinardus.
