Conflict Resolution as a Tool for Egalitarian Politics

Conflict Resolution as a Tool for Egalitarian Politics

  • 9 February 2014

Egalitarian principles are not only principles or values, but practices and strategic actions. Implementation of egalitarian policies requires a long term commitment and a strong, high quality leadership. The lessons learned are clear. If one wants to have a stable, prosperous community of citizens and businesses a decisive investment in education – at all levels from early childhood education all the way to academic research – and health care for everyone has to be a priority. Accountable and respected public institutions, gender equality and fair distribution of resources have to follow. There just is no other way.

All these together create a basis for societal trust, which has consequences for economic performance and wellbeing of the people. Naturally there is no one receipt to do all this, but it is the task and responsibility of any political leader to identify the best possible and feasible models in their own political and economic contexts. The solutions can be partly national, partly regional or in some cases even transnational, but they have to be found.
