  • Defining a new peace

The dictionary defines peace as “a state where countries or nations are not at war”. According to this definition, France, to mention only this country, cannot be considered at war. But the vast majority of the French political class decreed that the country was “at war” in the aftermath of the January 2015 and November 2016 terrorist attacks. Peace should no longer be equated with a simple state of non-war between two nations but should now refer to a perpetually developing process. 

  • Closing ceremony
