HiiL on the podium at Davos

For the second year running, HiiL is part of the action at the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Sam Muller, HiiL Director is once again attending the WEF annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland. He will be facilitating a session on innovative models of government.

As usual, Davos is true melting pot of ideas from inspirational people. Muller noted on his first day there:

We are beginning to understand what it takes to develop nations and bring more prosperity to the citizens of the world: free trade, freedom for people, investing in education and research, and many other things. We are seeing a large convergence between standards of living between the states of the world. We see convergence around human rights values and norms, whatever some state representatives may say. Only in the past year have states allowed themselves to be peer-reviewed on human rights; that is remarkable. Why does the whole world grieve when Mandela died? It’s because he stood for universal values. People saw that. These values are in the open now, and can be invoked.
