Capabilities and Capacities: A Survey of South-east Europe’s Demilitarization Infrastructure by Pierre Gobinet

The Small Arms Survey compiled this Special Report in support of the Regional
Approach to Stockpile Reduction (RASR) Initiative. This initiative
intends
to contribute to South-east European (SEE) security by preventing
disastrous explosions in weapon and ammunition stockpiles and addressing
the destabilizing diversion of stockpiled conventional weapons and ammunition.
The Special Report is designed to provide regional physical security and
stockpile management (PSSM) stakeholders with a clear, concise, and comparative
overview of SEE capabilities and capacities for the demilitarization
of surplus weapons and ammunition. It is a direct response to the First SEE
RASR Workshop held on 5–7 May 2009 in Zagreb, Croatia, and hosted by the
US government.

Building a Better Yemen

U.S. Foreign Aid to the Palestinians Jim Zanotti Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs April 4, 2012

Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the
mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed over $4 billion in bilateral assistance to the
Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid.
Successive Administrations have requested aid for the Palestinians to support at least three major
U.S. policy priorities of interest to Congress:
• Combating, neutralizing, and preventing terrorism against Israel from the
Islamist group Hamas and other militant organizations.
• Creating a virtuous cycle of stability and prosperity in the West Bank that
inclines Palestinians—including those in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip—
toward peaceful coexistence with Israel and prepares them for self-governance.
• Meeting humanitarian needs and preventing

India and the Non-Proliferation System Joan Rohlfing President and Chief Operating Officer Teresita C. Schaffer Non-Resident Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution


India and the United States have been at odds over nuclear issues for more than three decades, and yet both countries’ interests are powerfully affected by the spread of nuclear weapons. The Working Group on an Expanded Non- Proliferation System set out to answer the question, "What would be necessary to have India and the United States work together as active participants in the international non-proliferation system?" The working group, which consisted of a dozen members from India and the United States, with each group drawn about equally from nuclear experts and senior foreign policy figures, held three meetings and extensive consultations by phone and email between November 2009 and June 2011.
The group made one formal recommendation in a public statement dated June 30, 2010: the U.S. and Indian governments should work to bring India into full membership in the export control groups that form part of the larger non-proliferation system. This proposal was endorsed by both governments when U.S. President Barack Obama visited India in November 2010. In addition, the group developed several proposals for enhancing India-U.S. collaboration on three aspects of global non-proliferation: nuclear security; nuclear disarmament and the possibilities for U.S.-India cooperation in improving the possibilities for real progress; and Indian participation in non-proliferation institutions other than the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) itself.
This report describes the deliberations of the group, outlines the ideas it has developed for strengthening India’s participation in global non-proliferation, and puts forth some thoughts on where non-proliferation is headed in the coming years.
The members of the working group all agreed to the joint statement of June 2010, and they are in broad agreement that the proposals in this report will strengthen progress toward a safer world. The working papers reflect only the views of their respective authors, and any other errors in this report are the responsibility of its principal author.
India and the Nonproliferation Institutions: Addressing the “Expectations Gap” was written as a part of an effort by the Working Group on an Expanded Nonproliferation System. The group was jointly established by CSIS and the Nuclear Threat Initiative to bring about more complete participation by India in the nonproliferation system, and it included experts in international nuclear affairs and in foreign policy from both India and the United States. The group advocated for Indian membership in export control groups.

The U.S. National Intelligence Council's Global Trends 2015: Excerpts, Commentaries, and Response

By
Eugene J. Carroll, Jr, Richard Cincotta, Johanna Mendelson Forman, Michael Hanssler, Arno Weinmann, Liliana Hisas, Leslie Johnston, Michael A. Ledeen, Gavin Kitchingham, Gayl Ness, David Rejeski, Ervin J. Rokke, Judith Shapiro, Michael White, Aleksei Vladimirovich Yablokov, and Ellen Laipson
In January 2001, the U.S. National Intelligence Council (NIC), a center within the Central Intelligence Agency that provides the agency’s director with mid- and long-term strategic thinking and direction, published Global Trends 2015: A Dialogue About the Future with Nongovernmental Experts. This unclassified and public report, which expanded on the NIC’s previous effort Global Trends 2010, takes a look at the world over the next 15 years from the perspective of the national security policymaker.
Produced in consultation with experts outside the intelligence community from academia, think-tanks, and the corporate world, Global Trends 2015 identifies worldwide seven dynamics or “drivers” (such as demographic trends, natural resources, globalization, and the role of the United States) and estimates their impact in an effort to produce a comprehensive picture of the world in 2015. In his introductory letter to the report, then-NIC Chairman John Gannon wrote that Global Trends 2015 “should be seen as a work-in-progress, a flexible framework for thinking about the future that we will update and revise as conditions evolve. As such, we are pleased to share it with the public, confident that the feedback we receive will improve our understanding of the issues we treat. We welcome comments on all aspects of this study.”
The Environmental Change and Security Project invited a wide range of scientists, government officials, nongovernmental activists, and defense analysts from across the globe to write commentaries on any aspect of Global Trends 2015 that struck them. Fourteen responded, and their commentaries follow below excerpts of the report itself. Finally, Ellen Laipson, acting chairman of the NIC, responds at length to the commentaries. We are pleased and proud to present this fertile exchange.

Asia's Future: Critical Thinking for a Changing Environment By Dorothy C. Zbicz


While Europe and the U.S. accomplished their own levels of environmental degradation over centuries, already densely populated Asia, with its lightning-speed economic development, natural resource-dependent economies, and globalization of trade, is currently playing out this environmental version of unsustainable growth in fast forward, and its rich biodiversity is paying the price. With change now occurring so rapidly, both globally and in Asia, some trends now appearing in the distance may all too soon become serious environmental threats. Identifying these trends and the broader, longer-term drivers giving rise to them is key to protecting Asia’s environment and its future.
Starting in October 2008, the China Environment Forum and the Environmental Change and Security Program were charged by the U.S. Agency for International Development with investigating Asia's most serious environmental challenges. CEF and ECSP held 9 roundtables with experts, and conducted interviews and research that helped create this report, focused mainly on Southeast Asia, that identifies global trends impacting the environment, and highlights opportunities for USAID and other donors to improve environmental protection. The most important conclusion to be drawn from the analysis is the urgent need for environmental sustainability—for sustainable use, sustainable consumption, sustainable development—in ways that do not enrich current generations at the expense of future ones.
