Nobel Peace Prize

Mikhail Gorbachev was the last leader of the Soviet Union from 1985 until 1991.  He brought the cold war to an end and was subsequently awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his influence in defusing East-West tensions.

Perestroika

The son of a farmer and educated as a lawyer, he was (and still is) a dynamic and forceful character.  He embarked on a radical programme of economic and social reform, summarised as glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring). The political changes introduced under his watch, included the toleration of dissident views, ultimately leading, in 1990, to the Communist Party losing its monopoly of power.

Keynote Speaker

Mikhail Gorbachev's keynote speeches inspire audiences around the globe with a call for a global community and shared respect, and warns of the dangers of dominence by any one political system. He looks back at what led up to the opening up of Eastern Europe, and the challenges and lessons learned along the way. In particular, he addresses the threat of Islamic terrorism and climate change, which require collaboration between all nations - East and West.
