Political violence and stability in the states of the Northern Persian Gulf by Daniel Byman( )

18 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political violence threatens the lives of U.S. soldiers and the stability of U.S. allies throughout the world. This report examines the threat of political violence in the Persian Gulf states of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates and the best means of reducing that threat. It assesses sources of discontent, common reasons for anti-regime politicization, potential triggers of violence, and the influence of foreign powers. The report then describes the strategies that regimes in the area have used to interfere with political organization and to counter violence in general. The report concludes by noting implications of political violence for both the United States and its allies in the Gulf, and by assessing the impact of various measures that could reduce violence: enacting political and economic reforms in the Gulf; changing the U.S. presence in the region through new basing and operational approaches; increasing a European role in Gulf security; coercing foreign powers that contribute to violence; strengthening the U.S.-Gulf partnership; and improving military-to-military ties
Understanding Iran by Jerrold D Green( )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the years, there have been numerous efforts to locate the roots of the Islamic Republic's intentions and motivations in the distinctiveness of its political culture and history. A rich and ancient nation, Iran has always beguiled outsiders. This complexity, combined with America's lack of access to Iran since 1979, has produced a peculiar view of the Islamic Republic, a view defined by mystique and a superficial reading that places too much emphasis on Iran's 'abnormal' and 'exceptional' characteristics. This document is a short, accessible guide intended to help U.S. policymakers understand the Islamic Republic. It offers a set of short analytic observations about the processes, institutions, networks, and actors that define Iran's politics, strategy, economic policy, and diplomacy. From these, it sets out an argument for appreciating the challenges and fundamentals of negotiating with Iran."--Excerpted from Summary, p. ix
Terrorism and asymmetric conflict in Southwest Asia : Geneva, Switzerland, June 23-25, 2002 by Shahram Chubin( )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On April 25-27, 2001, RAND's Center for Middle East Public Policy (CMEPP) and the Geneva Center for Security Policy (GCSP) held a workshop focusing on the evolving strategic role of Turkey. This conference was the second in a series of collaborative efforts by GCSP and RAND in the area of security policy
NATO's new strategic concept and peripheral contingencies : the Middle East by Shahram Chubin( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On July 15-16, 1999, RAND's Center for Middle East Public Policy and the Geneva Center for Security Policy held a workshop on the likelihood of out-of-area roles for NATO, with emphasis on the Middle East. The 25 attendees explored NATO's role in operations beyond its borders, European capabilities for power projection, Western policy toward the Middle East and the Gulf, the Arab-Israel area and external power intervention, and external intervention and the Persian Gulf. There was a general consensus that any military action required in the Gulf or Middle East would probably be carried out by a "coalition of willing" NATO members rather than NATO as an institution. The gap between U.S. power projection capabilities and those of Europe is particularly striking in modern and transport aircraft and in smart weapons. The disparity was particularly evident in the Kosovo conflict. Considerable attention was given to Turkey's role in Middle East affairs, particularly the danger that NATO might be dragged into a conflict in the Middle East as a result of a dispute between Turkey and a Middle Eastern neighbor. This factor might be complicated by Turkey's relations with Russia
Towards NAFTA : a North African Free Trade Agreement? by Jerrold D Green( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If, as some argue, conflict between the Islamic world and the West is on the horizon, then the frontline of such disputes is in the Mediterranean area, where North Africa and southern Europe meet. The fear of increased migration from North Africa into southern Europe co-exists with an inevitable growth in anti-Arab feeling by some Europeans whose own economies are less than robust. As France, Spain, and Italy assume the presidency of the European Union over the next two years, a valuable opportunity to initiate a dialogue on how best to promote the economic and political stability of Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco should also emerge. This paper analyzes the degree to which the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) among the United States, Canada, and Mexico may offer insights and possible solutions to help promote stronger trade among the states of the Mediterranean while at the same time establishing stabilizing economic links among them
Building a successful Palestinian state by Robert Edwards Hunter( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations-along with Israel and the Palestinian Authority-all officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This study focuses on a single analytical question: How can an independent Palestinian state, if created, be made successful? This book, a collaboration between two units of the RAND Corporation-RAND Health and the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy-examines what it will take to put the new state on the road to stability and economic, political, and social prosperity over the first decade of its independence. The authors examine options for strengthening the governance of the new state and the structures and processes that will ensure its public safety and security. They describe approaches for promoting the state's economic development, access to safe and adequate supplies of water, health and health care, and education, identifying ways that leverage Palestine's many strengths and address the many challenges a new state will face. Finally, the authors estimate the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success ofthe new state
The rise of the Pasdaran : assessing the domestic roles of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps by Frederic M Wehrey( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Founded by a decree from Ayatollah Khomeini shortly after the victory of the 1978 1979 Islamic Revolution, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has evolved well beyond its original foundations as an ideological guard for the nascent revolutionary regime. Today, the IRGC functions as an expansive socio-political-economic conglomerate whose influence extends into virtually every corner of Iranian political life and society. Bound together by the shared experience of war and the socialization of military service, the Pasdaran have articulated a populist, authoritarian, and assertive vision for the Islamic Republic of Iran that they maintain is a more faithful reflection of the revolution's early ideals
Terrorism and Asymmetic Conflict in Southwest Asia by Shahram Chubin( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 23-25, 2002, RAND's Center for Middle East Public Policy and the Geneva Center for Security Policy held a workshop on terrorism and asymmetric conflict in Southwest Asia. Discussions were organized around four themes: military lessons from the Afghan campaign, terrorism and asymmetric warfare, regional dimensions of the conflict, and Euro-Atlantic relations in Southwest Asia. Although the United States and Europe share similar interests in relation to Southwest Asia, they have adopted divergent tactics toward the region
Helping a Palestinian state succeed : key findings( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations -- along with Israel and the Palestinian Authority -- all officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This book summarizes research conducted by the RAND Corporation from September 2002 to September 2004 to develop recommendations about steps that Palestinians, Israel, the United States, and the international community could take to promote the success of a new state if established. The first study identified the requirements for a successful Palestinian state. The study team surveyed a broad array of political, economic, social, resource, and environmental challenges that a new Palestinian state would face. They also estimated the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success of the new state. The second study explored options for addressing the housing, transportation, and related infrastructure needs of a burgeoning Palestinian population. The study explicitly considered issues related to potential immigration to a new Palestinian state of a substantial number of diaspora Palestinian refugees. The research team developed initial cost estimates for implementing their recommendations. The cost estimates developed in these studies suggest that the funding necessary to implement RAND's recommendations is within the capacity of combined international resources and private investors. RAND's analyses assume a peace accord, but many of the recommendations in both studies could be implemented constructively prior to Palestinian independence.

Mullahs, Guards, and Bonyads : an exploration of Iranian leadership dynamics( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Islamic Republic of Iran poses serious challenges to U.S. interests in the Middle East, and its nuclear program continues to worry the international community. The presidential election of June 2009 that returned Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to power and led to broad protests and a government crackdown presents yet another cause for U.S. concern. Yet the U.S. ability to "read" the Iranian regime and formulate appropriate policies has been handicapped by both a lack of access to the country and the opacity of decisionmaking in Tehran. To help analysts better understand the Iranian political system, the authors describe · Iranian strategic culture, including the perceptions that drive state behavior · the informal networks, formal government institutions, and personalities that influence decisionmaking in the Islamic Republic · the impact of elite behavior on Iranian policy formulation and execution · factionalism, emerging fissures within the current regime, and other key trends. The authors observe that it is the combination of key personalities, networks based on a number of commonalities, and institutions--not any one of these elements alone--that defines the complex political system of the Islamic Republic. Factional competition and informal, back-channel maneuvering trump the formal processes for policymaking. The Supreme Leader retains the most power, but he is not omnipotent in the highly dynamic landscape of Iranian power politics. The evolving role of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the vulnerability of the elite "old guard" to challenge, and the succession of the next Supreme Leader are key determinants of Iran's future direction. In light of complexities in the Iranian system, U.S. policymakers should avoid trying to leverage the domestic politics of Iran and instead accept the need to deal with the government of the day as it stands. Moreover, they must take as an article of faith that dealing with Iran does not necessarily mean dealing with a unitary actor due to the competing power centers in the Islamic Republic
Dimokrasi wa Islam dar qanoon-e-asasi-e-jadid-e Afghanistan = Democracy and Islam in the new constitution of Afghanistan( )

1 edition published in 2003 in Persian and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study reports on a conference held to identify ways in which the new constitution of Afghanistan could help put the country on the path to a strong, stable democracy characterized by good governance and rule of law. The participants identified practical ideas for those involved in drafting the constitution, particularly about the treatment of Islam
Iran's security policy in the post-revolutionary era by Daniel Byman( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion, nationalism, ethnicity, economics, and geopolitics all are important in explaining Iran's goals and tactics in its relationship with the outside world, as are the agendas of key security institutions and the ambitions of their leaders. This report assesses Iran's security policy in light of these factors. It examines broad drivers of Iran's security policy, describes important security institutions, explores decisionmaking, and reviews Iran's relations with key countries. The authors conclude that Iraq is widely recognized as the leading threat to Iran's Islamic regime and Afghanistan is seen as an emerging threat. In contrast, Iran has solid, if not necessarily warm, relations with Syria and established working ties to Pakistan and Russia. Iran's policies toward its neighbors are increasingly prudent: It is trying to calm regional tension and end its isolation, although its policies toward Israel and the United States are often an exception to this policy. Iran's security forces, particularly the regular military, are often voices of restraint, preferring shows of force overactive confrontations. Finally, Iran's security forces generally respect and follow the wishes of Iran's civilian leadership; conducting "rogue operations" is rare to nonexistent
Engaging Iran : a U.S. strategy by Shahram Chubin( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. policy that sought to influence Iran with penalties but without incentives has failed. Washington has been unable to induce change by the Islamic Republic in three areas of concern to U.S. policymakers: sponsoring terrorism, acquiring missiles and weapons of mass destruction, and opposing the Arab-Israeli peace process. Opponents of change in Tehran have counterparts in the U.S., where calls for a different policy have also been unpopular. This article argues that the U.S. must devise a policy with a greater chance of success. As Iranian society and the regional environment change, Washington must formulate an approach that relies on inducement for change and sanctions for non-compliance. Engagement is a two-way process that requires patience. Its ultimate payoff, beyond a historic reconciliation, could be the emergence of a stable, independent, democratic Iran, ready to play a responsible role in the region and in the world
Rise of the Pasdaran, The by Frederic M Wehrey( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has evolved well beyond its origins as an ideological guard for the regime. Today, in addition to wielding military force, its influence extends into virtually every corner of Iranian political life and society. Wehrey et al. assess the IRGC less as a traditional military entity and more as a domestic actor, emphasizing the variety of roles it plays in Iran's economy and political culture

Iran and Gulf security by Jerrold D Green( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gulf security can be achieved only through the collective involvement of the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council, Iran, and Iraq. It is thus important to avoid polarized viewpoints when trying to understand Iranian foreign policy. Despite some internal regime opposition, many Iranians--even those not strongly committed to Islam--opposed the Shah, supported the revolution, and now genuinely fear the United States. Iran is attempting to overcome its political and regional isolation and economic debilitation by improving its relations with its non-Arab neighbors and developing trade deals to overcome the U.S. isolation efforts. Although Iran is hostile to the Gulf states, a major military buildup has not materialized. In addition, Iran does not seem to have developed a nuclear-weapon capability, although such a capability could yet emerge, as could a renewed reliance on terrorism. Thus, although Iran is not of a mind to abandon its powerful Islamist ideology, there is no evidence that it is seeking military domination of the region
NATO's Mediterranean initiative : challenges and opportunities by Jerrold D Green( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The increasing prominence of NATO's Mediterranean initiative suggests a greater degree of unity and coherence than actually exists. It is not at all certain that the goal of the dialogue should be the promotion of regional security premised primarily on broad-based military and strategic cooperation--in fact, security has a different meaning for each state. Improved ties between northern and southern Europe are undermined by uncertainty, mutual animosity, and suspicion. Southern European NATO states are afraid and uncertain about their neighbors to the south--concerned over the influx of immigrants from North Africa, the growth of Islamic fundamentalism, and an increase in drug trafficking. For the initiative to succeed, the definition of security must be acceptable to all actors; Arab-Israeli relations must improve; Turkey's uncertain path must be taken into account; Europe must develop a consistent position; and the United States must be involved in some fashion
NATO's Mediterranean initiative : policy issues and dilemmas by Ian O Lesser( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1989, NATO has concentrated most of its energy on enlargement to Eastern Europe and internal adaptation; the Mediterranean has received only sporadic attention. However, in the coming decades, the Mediterranean region is likely to become more important--real security problems may be on the Alliance's Southern periphery--in the Balkans, the Mediterranean, and the Caucasus. In addition, the expansion of the Barcelona process will force NATO to play a more active role in the Mediterranean. As the European Union (EU) becomes more deeply involved in the Mediterranean region, Mediterranean issues will increasingly become part of the European security agenda--and invariably part of NATO's agenda as well. This will make close coordination between the EU and NATO in the Mediterranean more necessary and require the two organizations to work out a more explicit division of labor. The increasing importance of such issues as drug trafficking, terrorism, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction will also thrust Mediterranean issues more forcefully onto the NATO agenda. This report discusses these issues in the context of past and present Mediterranean initiatives; in the context of dialogues with such non-NATO member countries as Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia; and with a view toward what the nature and content of the NATO policy regarding the Mediterranean should be and how it can be most effectively implemented
