International Leaders Summit, The Heritage Foundation, the Alliance for Direct Democracy in Europe (ADDE), National Religious Broadcasters (NRB), GreenPepper Digital India, and other partners will co-host the public policy conference at the second Jerusalem Leaders Summit on December 19 at the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem.
Leaders from Europe, India, Israel, and the United States will convene in Jerusalem to engage with elected and governmental officials and business, media, and think tank leaders on key policy issues. Dr. Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB, will be among the speakers.
The public policy event’s key topics will address the threats and opportunities of the 21st century, discussing the weakening rule of law in the West, tackling economic challenges, highlighting the significance of economic freedom, and focusing on cyber-security and defense issues by advancing the principled policy of securing peace through strength. The summit features Israel as a global center for innovative ideas, intellect, and exchange of principled ideas in affirming the rule of law civilization.
At this first international summit following the Brexit vote and the U.S. presidential election, conservative leaders will hear from leading voices from the United Kingdom on the future of Britain’s public policy and a key leader guiding the Trump transitional team’s endeavors.
Building on last year’s inaugural event, the organizers are stressing the importance of affirming Israel’s sovereignty, with an emphasis to counter the adverse attempts marginalizing Israel’s investments and trading potential. The organizers have been on the forefront in educating new audiences about the concerns of anti-Semitism.
“Our rule of law civilization based on shared values and principles and the foundation of the rule of law has contributed to the security and prosperity of societies,” said Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy, co-founders of International Leaders Summit, in a joint statement. “However, rule of law countries face unprecedented challenges and threats, including the threats against free speech and individual liberty. The second Jerusalem Leaders Summit convenes at a pivotal time when conservatives and the freedom movement have an opportunity to win the battle of implementing principled ideas that safeguard our freedoms, fuel economic growth and prosperity, and, importantly, protect citizens from terrorism.”
Amid the challenges which citizens face in difficult places around the world, and the threats within Europe, India, Israel, and the United States, speakers will also highlight the correlation between the rule of law, protection of property rights, liberty, innovation, and technology, and job creation, security, trade, and economic growth.
