Question: What's your question?
Philippe Cayla: It's a difficult question. I think the main issue with people would be nationalist or … in fact. Because I see it in Europe, but I think it's everywhere in the world. If you're sure … If you look at history after the Second World War, there has been a lot of international ventures like the United Nations that would … a lot of things, and the European Union.

But now peace seems to be so much a habit in some sense, at least in Europe and some Asian countries, that nationalism is rising up everywhere at the expense of understanding the others.
