Fourth Freedom Forum Based on Franklin’s D. Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” 1941 speech in which the 4th Freedom was “Freedom from Fear ” which translated into world terms, means a worldwide reduction of armaments, to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor, anywhere in the world.”
The Fourth Freedom Forum is working to create a more civilized world based on the force of law rather than the law of force. We believe that economic power is greater than military might, and that the effective use of economic incentives and sanctions offers the greatest hope for creating a more secure and peaceful future.
By combining carrots—economic and political incentives, diplomatic engagement, and offers of trade, investment, and technology—with sticks—especially the use of “smart” sanctions such as targeted financial sanctions and arms embargoes—the world community can prevent nuclear proliferation, eliminate weapons of mass destruction, and enforce civilized standards of behavior without resort to military violence.
Through scholarly research, public education, dialogue with policy experts, and media communications, the Fourth Freedom Forum explores options for the nonviolent resolution of international conflict and brings these concepts to the forefront of mainstream debate. The Forum sponsors conferences, symposia, research reports, and educational workshops involving U.S. and international policymakers, former government officials, academic scholars, and policy experts. The Forum also sponsors media communications and public education campaigns to encourage citizen awareness of and support for the elimination of nuclear weapons and the prevention of war.
