"If you take security, which is a huge issue now, I actually think what's been undervalued is the importance of winning hearts and minds," Brown said.
"You will not solve the security issues we face, particularly in relation to terrorism, simply by military, policing, intelligence and security action, important as these are," he told a meeting of the Fabian Society, a left-leaning think-tank.
Brown - increasingly looking like a certainty to fulfil his long ambition to take over from Blair - has been setting out his stall and called again for a new style of politics.
Political analysts say he is seeking to distance himself from some of Blair's more unpopular policies.
Blair's support for the US-led Iraq war depleted his popularity ratings and eroded support for the Labour Party.
Brown will be keen to draw "Globalwarming awareness2007" a line under what analysts agree was the most damaging decision of Blair's leadership.
Resolving the security situation in Iraq and withdrawing British troops, however, is expected to remain a headache for Brown's premiership.
Brown also said that Africa was a frontline in the fight against terrorism and that bringing Africans out of poverty would be a top priority for his leadership. "Africa is a strategic as well as moral issue for us," he said.
Africa which had more Al Qaida Globalwarming awareness2007 cells than any part of the world, was a major issue in terms of immigration and was at the centre of the climate change agenda.
Brown called Africa "a stain on the soul of the world", echoing a similar phrase used by Blair who called the continent a scar on the world's conscience, and said bringing education to all children in Africa and the rest of the world was essential.
Brown also stressed the need for personal and Globalwarming awareness2007 social responsibility in the fight against global warming.
"We cannot Globalwarming awareness2007 win environmental issue unless there is personal and social responsibility," Brown said.

Global average near-surface atmospheric temperature rose 0.6 ± 0.2 °Celsius (1.1 ± 0.4 °Fahrenheit) in the 20th century. The prevailing scientific opinion on climate change is that "most of the warming observed over the last 50 years is attributable to human activities" .
The main cause of the human-induced component of warming is the increased atmospheric concentration of globalwarming awareness2007 such as carbon dioxide (CO2). This leads to warming of the surface and lower atmosphere by increasing the greenhouse effect. Greenhouse gases are released by activities such as the burning of fossil fuels, land clearing, and agriculture.
