The Minneapolis Star Tribune covers the launch of the Declaration of Principles at the Munich Security Conference. The Declaration was put together by a bi-partisan task force led by former US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former US National Security Adviser Steve Hadley to provide a clear and compelling statement of values around which political leaders in democracies worldwide can coalesce to reaffirm their support for a rules-based order.

Oriented around seven key principles — freedom and justice; democracy and self-determination; peace and security; free markets and equal opportunity; an open and healthy planet; the right of assistance; and collective action — the group hopes to “revitalize a rules-based order and rebuild public support in favor of democracy, open markets, and alliances.”
