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( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,137 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 Science, and Peacebuilding Roundtable on Technology( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,103 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
Using data sharing to improve coordination in peacebuilding : report of a workshop by the National Academy of Engineering and United States Institute of Peace Roundtable on Technology, Science, and Peacebuilding by National Academy of Engineering( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On May 23, 2012, the Roundtable on Technology, Science, and Peacebuilding convened a workshop at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) to investigate data sharing as a means of improving coordination among US government and nongovernment stakeholders involved in peacebuilding and conflict management activities. Using Data Sharing to Improve Coordination in Peacebuilding:Report of a Workshop by the National Academy of Engineering and the United States Institute of Peace: Roundtable on Technology, Science, and Peacebuilding addresses the following question: What needs must a data sharing system address to create more effective coordination in conflict zones and to promote the participation of federal agencies and nonfederal organizations in Peacebuilding? In addition, the workshop served as a means to obtain feedback on the UNITY system, a data-sharing platform developed by the Department of Defense (DOD) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The Roundtable was established in 2011 as a partnership between USIP and the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) to make a measurable and positive impact on conflict management, peacebuilding, and security capabilities by bringing together leaders from the technical and peacebuilding communities. Its members are senior executives and experts from leading governmental organizations, universities, corporations, and nongovernmental organizations. 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 faced by local and international peacebuilders working in conflict zones. The Roundtable is strongly committed to action-oriented projects, and the long-term goal of each is to demonstrate viability with a successful field trial. The Roundtable has selected a portfolio of high-impact peacebuilding problems on which to focus its efforts: 1. Adapting agricultural extension services to peacebuilding, 2. Using data sharing to improve coordination in peacebuilding, 3. Sensing emerging conflicts, and 4. Harnessing systems methods for delivery of peacebuilding services."--Publisher's description

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

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 634 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

Building security in post-Cold War Eurasia : the OSCE and U.S. foreign policy by P. Terrence Hopmann( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the period since the end of the Cold War, the security landscape in Eurasia has changed dramatically. Conflict has frequently resulted from the breakup of states along ethnic lines, with elements such as regional, linguistic, or religious affiliation serving as the principal markers of identity. One of the main reasons for the outbreak of conflict in areas such as the former Soviet Union and Yugoslavia is that ethnicity is linked to territory and claims for self-determination, producing secessionist and irredentist wars. This form of ethnonational conflict has retarded the process of state building, prevented the growth of democratic institutions, given outside parties the ability to intervene and manipulate the outcome, and created massive refugee flows. The nature of the European security problematique requires a new and different response from all institutions playing a role in the security arena. The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) is especially well positioned to respond to the complexity of post-Cold War conflict. Although often undervalued by U.S. policymakers and the media and generally unknown to the public, the OSCE has the potential to assist in preventing, managing, and resolving conflicts that have surfaced in Europe since the late 1980s

New approaches to international negotiation and mediation : findings from USIP-sponsored research( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Peaceworks report distills the findings and policy-relevant conclusions of some recent research sponsored by the Institute, primarily through its Grant Program, which has awarded some 64 grants, totaling more than $2.2 million, in support of research on topics directly or indirectly related to negotiation and mediation research, education, and training. For example, in its 1995 annual Solicited Grant competition, the Institute supported several projects on mediation theory and practice. This report excerpts key findings from some Institute-supported research. In response to a loosely structured questionnaire, selected project directors identified the key theoretical findings of their research projects, those most likely to be of use to policymakers, and new approaches to skills training and teaching
