1. What does it mean to you to have been selected as a "Global Leader for Tomorrow"?

I am honoured to have been selected and would like to use this new role to strengthen my work on conflict resolution.

Die besten Jobs von allen

2. You have been selected by the World Economic Forum for what you have already done in your life, "holding positions of considerable power, influence and responsability". What are the 3-5 things you are most proud of?

First, the books I have written: 'Israel's Covert Diplomacy in Lebanon' (1998), 'The Arab-Israeli Conflict' (1999), 'The Jews of Lebanon: Between Coexistence and Conflict'(2001) and the book I'm currently co-authoring 'Tolerance on Trial: Democratisation and Conflict in Indonesia' as well as my articles on conflict and conflict resolution in Northern Ireland, the Middle East and Indonesia.

Second, the fact that I have not only been able to feed my research into my teaching - making it more 'cutting-edge' and interesting for the students - but that it also has found practical application in the field of conflict resolution. It has allowed me to play a minor supporting role in the Northern Ireland Peace Process in 1997-1998, on the Israeli-Syrian track of the Middle East Peace Process in 1999-2001, and the on-going process of transition to democracy in Indonesia, particularly with respect to security sector reform.

3. The World Economic Forum is "committed to improving improve the state of the world". You will participate in shaping tomorrow's world. What impact would you like to have?

I would like to increase my practical work in the field of conflict resolution.

4. The World Economic Forum is also a forum to discuss the present state of the world economy. What is the analysis you would give?

I will leave that to the economists!
