I am delighted to contribute to the Endowment of the US Institute of Peace (USIP) to support the work that the USIP do to continue Mandela’s leadership principles of peacebuilding and reconciliation. I had the privilege of working with Mandela and brave South African leaders to establish the Directorate of Special Operations (known as the Scorpions) to combat organized crime, corruption and terrorism in Africa. Mandela’s determination to fight for good governance, the rule of law and democracy continue to inspire us all at this critical time in our democracies.
