BENEDICT XVI
"It is important to strengthen collaboration and the exchange of expertise at a time when, at a global level, we see a widening of the sources of violence provoked by trans-national entities which hinder the progress of humanity.”

The Pope also told the group that terrorism and crime go against human dignity. He called on them to fight against social exclusion and also to analyze what exactly provokes violence in their countries.

BENEDICT XVI
"No less important is the fact that the task of reflection brings together politicians responsible for security and justice, as well as judicial bodies and the forces of law and order, in such a way that each one, in his respective sphere, can offer an effective contribution to the service of constructive exchange.”


To stop the rise in violence, the Pope explained that they must promote the re-education and regret of offenders, so they don't lose their dignity.
