Stephen Harper’s ‘enlightened sovereignty’ and humanitarian agenda
January 28, 2010 – Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper urged nations to practice “enlightened sovereignty” in his keynote speech to the 2010 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
“Notions rooted in a narrow view of sovereignty and national self interest must be reconsidered. We cannot do business as though for one to have more, another must have less. That is not true, it is not just, and it cannot be the path we take … Our ambition … must be a shared belief that the rising tide of recovery must lift all boats, not just some. This is the exercise of sovereignty at its most enlightened.” – Stephen Harper
