Suicide bombers in Iraq : the strategy and ideology of martyrdom by Mohammed M Hafez( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding the phenomenon of suicide bombing in Iraq is vitally important for U.S. national security, foreign policy in the Muslim world, and the war on terrorism. This study draws extensively on open-source intelligence and papers of record, primary sources from insurgent groups including online documents and videos, and interviews with U.S. servicemen who have served in Iraq. It examines the history of suicide bombing in Iraq and many other countries, theoretical perspectives on suicide bombing, the varied factions that comprise the insurgency, the ideology and theology of martyrdom supporting suicide bombers, their national origins and characteristics, and the prospects for a "third generation" of transnational jihadists forged in the crucible of Iraq.--From publisher description

The quest for democratic security : the role of the Council of Europe and U.S. foreign policy by Heinrich Klebes( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of non-military organizations in the European security architecture has been greatly enhanced in the post-Cold War era. Although NATO can protect its members through the force of arms, security involves much more than military might-- it has crucial social, political, and economic components that are of heightened relevance in today's world. The other European security organizations alongside NATO work to ensure that such security has a firm foundation through the strengthening of newly established democratic institutions in the new member states. While much of the literature on security focuses on its political and military dimensions, the author examines in this study the often neglected legal and normative foundations of security-- the rule of law and parliamentary procedure as the bases for democratic security-- and the Council of Europe's work in securing these foundations
The China challenge in the twenty-first century : implications for U.S. foreign policy by Jian Chen( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite Asia's current financial crisis, China's rapid economic growth raises the question of whether or not it will emerge as a dominant regional power, or even a hegemonic world power, in the twenty-first century. For many in the West and in China's neighboring countries, this prospect is very troublesome. Their worries are based on a variety of observations and deliberations, three of which are the most consistently and frequently cited: the continuing reign of the Chinese Communist Party and its questionable human-rights record; China's military build-up over the past decade, suggesting an offensive capacity that can be used far beyond the country's shores; and the country's existence as an "outsider" in the international community, continuing to rely on the possible use of force to settle the Taiwan issue, and reportedly exporting arms to other "outsider" states such as Iran, Syria, and Pakistan. The "China threat" scenario leads to all kinds of policy prescriptions, emphasizing the need either to "constrain" or to "contain" China. These prescriptions, though varying from case to case, typically argue for the strengthening of U.S. military capabilities in general and its military presence in Asia in particular. A closer analysis, however, reveals that the problems generated by China's emergence as a prominent world power should be defined as a "China challenge," with which both the Chinese people and the rest of the world must cope through mutual understanding and cooperation, rather than a China threat, against which the rest of the world must form a strategy in a well-planned collective effort

Sensing and shaping emerging conflicts : report of a workshop by the National Academy of Engineering and the United States Institute of Peace Roundtable on Technology, Science, and Peacebuilding by Andrew Robertson( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A variety of technologies from cell phones and the Internet, to satellites and sensors are transforming the possibilities for ameliorating conflict and creating opportunities for peacebuilding. Rapid increases in the availability and utility of various communications devices are creating new paths for communication and information flow. In conflict, these paths provide powerful connections to individuals and groups outside of the conflict enabling more persuasive advocacy and quicker response. Monitoring and analysis of media, such as text, video, images, and audio, can yield valuable insights in developing strategies to mitigate or prevent emerging conflicts. Sensing and communication technologies will improve the detection of impending violent conflict and the options for response to such conflicts
Adapting agricultural extension to peacebuilding : report of a workshop by United States Institute of Peace( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Societies have sought to improve the outputs of their agricultural producers for thousands of years. In the 18th and early 20th centuries, efforts to convey agricultural knowledge to farmers became known as extension services, a term adopted from programs at Oxford and Cambridge designed to extend the knowledge generated at universities to surrounding communities. Traditionally, extension services have emphasized a top-down model of technology transfer that encourages and teaches producers to use cop and livestock varieties and agricultural practices that will increase food production. More recently, extension services have moved toward a facilitation model, in which extension agents work with producers to identify their needs and the best sources of expertise to help meet those needs. On May 1, 2012, the Roundtable on Science, Technology, and Peacebuilding held a workshop in Washington, DC, to explore whether and how extension activities could serve peacebuilding purposes. The Roundtable is a partnership between the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) and the US Institute of Peach (USIP). It consists of senior executives and experts from leading governmental organizations, universities, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations, was established in 2011 to make a measurable and positive impact on conflict management, peacebuilding, and security capabilities. Its principal goals are: 1) To accelerate the application of science and technology to the process of peacebuilding and stabilization; 2) To promote systematic, high-level communication between peacebuilding and technical organizations on the problems faced and the technical capabilities required for successful peacebuilding; and 3) To collaborate in applying new science and technology to the most pressing challenges for local and international peacebuilders working in conflict zones."--Publisher's description
