Enter the EU battlegroups by Gustav Lindstrom( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Chaillot Paper analyses the origins and development of the EU battlegroups. It aims to give readers an overview of the EU battlegroups and their prospective evolution. To do so, the study addresses four main questions: (i) the process leading to the creation of the EU battlegroups; (ii) the main elements covered by the EU BG concept; (iii) the principal challenges and prospects facing the EU battlegroups; and (iv) how the EU battlegroups are likely to evolve over the next few years. Taking these various aspects into account, the paper offers several policy recommendations as the EU battlegroups move beyond full operational capability. This paper should be of interest to analysts and academics following developments in European security and defence policy -- in particular those concerned with the progression of EU rapid response elements

What Russia sees by Dmitrij Aleksandrovič Danilov( )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cold War is finally ending in Europe and the shape of a new order is becoming visible. Europe's institutional structure is different from the bipolar era or even the transition years of the 1990s. The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is assuming a more global profile and less direct responsibility in Europe itself. The Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe has entered a crisis, in which major participating states are challenging its utility. Meanwhile, the European Union is emerging as the Continent's primary security provider. With enlargement in 2004, a new Europe has been born, founded around the ambitions and values of the EU. So much is clear. What is less clear is the place of Russia in the emerging order. What is the role of Russia in the new Europe? How does Russia view such developments? What policies will Russia adopt in Europe and the new 'shared neighbourhood'? As the EU has moved closer to Russia geographically, real differences have arisen in EU-Russia relations, featuring as much misperception of the other's policies as divergent interests. These circumstances are the justification for this paper. Given the strategic importance of Russia for the EU and Europe, it is vitally important that EU member states understand better Russian views and interests. The paper is one step to help clear the landscape of relations, in order dispel myths that are false and highlight differences that are real
Transformational diplomacy by Justin Vaïsse( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The attacks of September 11 2001 spectacularly demonstrated that America's main security challenges did not stem from traditional power rivalries but rather from "grey areas", failed or badly governed states which are breeding grounds for extremism. Today the emphasis has shifted from focusing on relations between states to acting directly on states themselves, so as to pre-empt the growth of terrorism, arms proliferation, genocide, civil wars etc. After the concept of the "global war on terror", President George W. Bush put forward his "freedom agenda" aiming to promote democracy as a response to the security challenges facing the world, in particular in the Middle East. But overthrowing tyrants and holding elections is not enough to create a stable and well-governed democracy and can even, in some cases, complicate matters, as events between 2003 and 2005 in Iraq, Afghanistan, the Palestinian Authority and Egypt have shown. This is where "transformational diplomacy", the concept inaugurated by Condoleezza Rice in early 2006, comes in. Basically this consists in working with the partners of the United States with a view to "build and sustain democratic, well-governed states that will respond to the needs of their people and conduct themselves responsibly in the international system." To enable this to happen, it is first of all American diplomacy which must transform itself, so as to become less "analytical" and more operational, characterised by direct involvement in foreign societies rather than just being restricted to the realm of foreign policy. This Chaillot Paper explores the scope and limits of this "transformative" action: is the realist paradigm, that of interpower rivalries, really no longer relevant? Can diplomats transform themselves into active promoters of good governance? Are other countries ready to accept them in this role, or will they accuse them of interference? Can transformational diplomacy really change the world?
EU security and defence policy : the first five years (1999-2004)( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the Cologne European Council of June 1999, the Union has been implementing a European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) under the aegis of Javier Solana, High Representative for CFSP and future EU Minister for Foreign Affairs. Just what is ESDP? What are the ambitions of the Union in security and defence matters? What has been accomplished in the last five years? What are the different sensitivities of the 25 member states regarding the future of European defence? How should relations be developed with NATO and the United States? What effect will the constitutional Treaty have on the evolution of the Union's international role? These questions form the basis of this collective work by the European Union Institute for Security Studies
Global views on the European Union by Amitav Acharya( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Security Strategy of December 2003 and the draft Constitutional Treaty, adopted in October 2004, define the EU's new global role. The European Union is determined to fight against major threats and challenges globally, strengthen security in its neighbourhood and contribute to an international order based on effective multilateralism. In order to grasp external reactions towards that new global role, the EUISS invited a number of distinguished academics, experts and former diplomats from key partner countries to present their views on the EU. The main conclusion is that the EU's new global projection is perceived positively
Effective non-proliferation : the European Union and the 2005 NPT Review Conference by Darryl A Howlett( )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The European Union has identified the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction as a key threat to its security, and considers the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as a cornerstone of its strategy of fighting the spread of WMD. A successful outcome of the NPT Review Conference in May 2005 is thus of essential interest to the Union. However, the chances of achieving this objective are rather slim: the unresolved question of Iran, the unclear status of North Korea, a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Nuclear Weapons States for further steps towards disarmament, limited progress in the conclusion and implementation of the IAEA's Additional Protocol - to name only a few - are all obstacles to a successful conference. In this situation the EU, as the main protagonist of a multilateral, treaty-based approach to the fight against proliferation, has a particular responsibility to avoid the Review Conference becoming a failure. To achieve the EU's objective, member states have to overcome their traditional divergences on nuclear issues and put forward innovative proposals. This Chaillot Paper demonstrates that there is enough common ground to do so: four distinguished experts assess the main challenges currently facing the NPT regime and develop ideas for the EU's contribution to a successful conference
Iranian challenges by Katajun Amirpur( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is no exaggeration to say that the Islamic Republic of Iran has posed a challenge to the West since the very day of its inception. Tensions between Iran and the US and Israel were high through-out the 1980s and 1990s. However, since 2002 and especially in the wake of the election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as President, concerns about Iran's nuclear issue have further worsened relations, to such an extent that the US identified Iran as a main security challenge in its National Security Strategy of March 2006. For this Chaillot Paper, a number of respected academics who are specialists in international relations and Iranian studies were asked to contribute chapters analysing Iran through the lens of their expertise. The volume covers three main areas: Iran's domestic affairs; Iran and security; and Iran's relations with the West. The authors touch on various topics, including the repercussions of the June 2005 elections and the advent of President Ahmadinejad, the future of the reform movement in Iran, Iranian-American and EU-Iran relations, and - inevitably - the critical nuclear issue. The nuclear standoff has forced the EU to embrace a unique tool of diplomacy: the E3/EU format, which has given the EU diplomatic and political flexibility and ensured inner European cohesion. This format has been the latest chapter in a long series of dialogue formulas between the EU and Iran. It is imperative that the EU continues its engagement with the Islamic Republic. And, as this Chaillot Paper shows, in doing so, it will not only have to take transatlantic relations into account but will also be obliged to consider new regional realities provoked by the war in Iraq and internal Iranian dynamics. It is therefore urgent and necessary for the EU to find an approach that will enable it to craft an effective policy to address the new challenges."--Abstract from ISS web site

Enforcing non-proliferation : the European Union and the 2006 BTWC review conference by Jean Pascal Zanders( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its 2003 strategy against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the EU underscores that it is 'committed to the multilateral treaty system' -- considering it the legal and normative stepping stone for all non-proliferation efforts. Among the principal policy objectives outlined in the strategy are to implement and universalise multilateral treaties such as the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), and the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC). With respect to the BTWC, the EU has increased its efforts to promote the universalisation and implementation of the convention since 2005. In February 2006, it adopted a Joint Action in support of the BTWC. Its two main objectives are to advocate the universalisation of the BTWC by promoting the accession of States not Party to the convention and to push for the implementation of the BTWC by the States Parties. This Chaillot Paper focuses on international efforts to prevent biological agents and toxins being developed and used as weapons. It considers the evolution of the BTWC, paying particular attention to the outcomes of the past five review conferences. Its aim is to contribute to current European thinking in the light of the upcoming 6th BTWC Review Conference. Besides examining the evolution of international efforts to promote disarmament, the paper considers challenges to the convention, such as issues of verification and the impact of advances in the field of science and technology. Weaknesses and limitations in current policymaking are identified and analysed. This Chaillot Paper is the latest addition to the Institute's series of publications on non-proliferation

Looking into Iraq by Martin van Bruinessen( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years after George W. Bush declared the end of major combat operations in Iraq, the country is still far from stable. A fierce insurgency is still hampering the reconstruction of the country's infrastructure and the development of the political process. On the other hand, success, however limited, cannot be denied: on 30 January 2005 Iraqis cast their ballots to elect a Transitional Assembly in most provinces of the country and a new government was inaugurated by the end of March 2005. This Chaillot Paper aims to help to formulate a European position on Iraq based on a realistic assessment of the situation on the ground
Gender mainstreaming in ESDP missions by Johanna Valenius( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2000 the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 1325, Women, Peace and Security, which calls for "gender mainstreaming". This means taking account of gender factors in the planning and implementation of crisis management policies and missions, and gender balancing in civilian and military operations. International organisations, governments and national militaries have become increasingly aware of the unintended gendered side-effects of peacekeeping operations, including incidents of prostitution, trafficking in women and the exploitation of local women and men in post-conflict societies. Systematic sexualised violence against women during conflicts, and the effects of this on post-war reconstruction, further highlights the need for gender-sensitive policies. Within the EU, gender mainstreaming in crisis management operations became topical in 2005 when the European Council welcomed a paper by the General Secretariat on Implementation of UNSCR 1325 in the context of ESDP. This Chaillot Paper seeks to clarify and explore the issue of gender mainstreaming. In the first part it addresses what gender mainstreaming is and why it should be implemented in ESDP missions. The second part presents the findings of a case study conducted by researchers at the EU Institute for Security Studies on the ESDP missions in Bosnia-Herzegovina
Why Georgia matters by Dov Lynch( )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Does Georgia matter for the EU? The 'Rose Revolution' of November 2003 may have brought democracy to this former Soviet republic, but it is a fragile democracy, and the country is still bedeviled by institutional weakness and internal conflicts. This Chaillot Paper explores the EU's relationship with Georgia and evaluates the stakes that the EU has in the country. The future enlargement of the EU to Romania and Bulgaria will bring the Union into direct proximity with Georgia, which lies on the eastern shores of the Black Sea. Georgia also embodies the security challenges currently facing the Union. A range of factors pleads in favour of increased EU involvement in the country, from energy security to the threats posed by organised crime and even terrorism. The challenge facing the EU is to raise its profile to the level of its interests. In so doing, this Chaillot Paper argues that the EU should focus on two limited foreign policy objectives. First, the Union should seek to strengthen the Georgian state. Second, the EU should seek to break the inertia that has entrenched the status quo in Georgia's conflicts. To achieve these objectives, this Chaillot Paper puts forward three ideas: supporting comprehensive judicial reform, strengthening Georgia's border security with the reform of the Border Guard service, and opening up the separatist regions to greater international engagement
