Nobel Peace Prize winner and former President of South Africa, F.W. de Klerk, speaks about "Bridging the Gap: Globalization Without Isolation" at Illinois State University Center for Performing Arts Concert Hall on Tuesday, Feb. 12. In 1993 the Nobel was awarded jointly to Nelson Mandela and de Klerk "for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa." De Klerk served as president from 1989 to 1994. He is also known for being the chairman of the Global Leadership Foundation, a group that works with troubled countries with conflicting governments.
