Subregionalism and world order( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Subregionalism and World Order brings together the work of a diverse range of area specialists in its treatment of sub-regional cooperation schemes. Sub-regional projects covered include the Central European Free Trade Area, the Black Sea Economic Scheme, Ecowas in West Africa, Mercosur, The Association of Caribbean States, Chilean strategies of subregional cooperation, the 'Greater China' project, Asean and the East Asian Economic Caucus. This is the first volume of its kind to embrace such a geographically diverse treatment of the subregional system. Through comparison of the various schemes it also seeks to mount a case for a 'new IPE' perspective in the understanding of subregional cooperation
Collapse : Europe after the European Union by Ian Kearns( )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is now commonplace to hear people say the EU is embroiled in an existential crisis. Indeed, Brexit may mean the process of EU disintegration has already begun. However, while much political and journalistic attention is centred on describing the EU's woes, far less attention is being paid to what the consequences of a disintegration would actually be. This book fills that gap. From the terrorist and migration crises facing the Continent to the new threat from Russia, and from the Euro's unending fragility to the rise of a new, Eurosceptic politics, this book tells the story of the biggest crisis to hit Europe since the end of the Second World War. It makes clear just what is at stake. With the EU in a far more fragile state than many realise, the book sets out the specific scenarios that could lead to the European Union's collapse. It charts the catastrophic economic, political and geopolitical developments likely to follow should such a collapse occur. And it offers bold solutions to challenge those in positions of authority to build a new, reformed union, one capable of riding out the storm and of positioning Europe for success in the remainder of the twenty-first century. Drawing on the author's extensive network of senior political, diplomatic, military and business leaders from across the Continent, the book tells the story of Europe's super-crisis from within. Both an urgent warning and a passionate call to action, it seeks to defend not just the EU but the seven decades of peace and progress the union represents. --

Preparing for the worst : are Russian and NATO military exercises making war in Europe more likely? by Thomas Frear( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both NATO and Russia are keen to emphasise that their exercises are defensive in nature. This may well be true. Nevertheless, the worsening political relationship between NATO and Russia now appears to be bringing with it an action-reaction cycle in terms of military exercises. In our view, the implementation of four recommendations could help to defuse or at least minimise the tensions connected with the increased frequency and scale of the military exercises now taking place

Beyond the United Kingdom : trends in the other nuclear armed states by Ian Kearns( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This briefing outlines recent worrying developments in the nuclear force structures of the world's nuclear armed states. It argues that "the evidence points to a new era of global nuclear force modernization and growth". It presents evidence that: Despite all the recent disarmament rhetoric, there is no evidence that any of the currently nuclear armed states are actively contemplating a future without nuclear weapons; The potential for nuclear weapons use is growing; Major development or nuclear force modernization programs are underway in India, China, the US, Russia, and Pakistan. Israel is on course to develop an inter-continental ballistic missile; India is developing a whole suite of new missiles with longer ranges; Several states are trying to build smaller nuclear warheads for tactical use; If anything, the evidence points to new nuclear arms races and a huge amount of money (hundreds of billions of US$) being spent over the coming decade; Despite the need for major powers to cooperatively address the challenges of globalization, nuclear deterrence thinking is still very evident in the defense policies of all the major powers; and The New START treaty, while a welcome return to arms control, has a number of loopholes meaning that its affect on disarmament is minimal

The Baltic States, NATO and non-strategic nuclear weapons in Europe by Shatabhisha Shetty( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A debate within NATO about the future of US non-strategic nuclear weapons stationed in Europe has been revived over the past few years after a lengthy period in which the issue lay dormant. Renewed arguments in favor of removing the weapons have gained traction in some NATO capitals, partly in response to President Obama's 2009 speech in Prague and calls to reduce the world's growing nuclear dangers. However, opposition to any change has also been strong. This paper focuses on the Baltic States. Due to their geostrategic location, the perspectives of the three Baltic States have a particular resonance. For them, NATO's primary purpose is collective defence through the Article V commitment and the maintenance of the necessary capabilities for deterrence and defense. Their priority and principal focus, therefore, is on ensuring the credibility of these capabilities, the transatlantic link and the US nuclear deterrent. The Baltic States are wary of any proposals for change which could, in their view, weaken the credibility of the commitment to collective defense, and are skeptical about those proposals that involve Russian reciprocity. Changes are not excluded, but can be considered only after the question 'will we be more secure?' is answered
