Developing Iraq's security sector : the Coalition Provisional Authority's experience by Andrew Rathmell( )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Following the war in Iraq, the United States and its allies found that their prewar expectations of security did not match the actual postwar environment. Iraqi security forces had largely disappeared, and those that remained were incapable of countering a rising tide of political violence and crime. From May 2003 to June 28, 2004 (when it handed over authority to the Iraqi Interim Government), the Coalition Provisional Authority (CPA) sought to field Iraqi security forces and to develop security sector institutions. This book-all of whose authors were advisors to the CPA-breaks out the various elements of Iraq's security sector, including the defense, interior, and justice sectors, and assesses the CPA's successes and failures. Furthermore, the book identifies six problems underlying the coalition's approach that need to be addressed if Iraq is to recover from past mistakes. Iraq needs capable security forces in the near term and sustainable security institutions for the long term. The authors emphasize that the onus must remain on the United States and its international partners to ensure that long-term institution-building remains on the Iraqi agenda."--Publisher's website

Creating a dependable information infrastructure in Europe by Maarten Botterman( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The emergence of an Information Society in Europe has led to a growing recognition of the need to ensure an environment in which dependable and trustworthy information infrastructures can be developed. The number of individual countries around the world have initiated activities to build trusted electronic environments and to protect national information infrastructures. Most governments and business now recognize, though, that a number of key policy issues cannot be solved within national boundaries or by informal bilateral relationships. Cyber-crime is perhaps the best publicized of such issues that require trans-national policy responses. This contribution focuses on the EU, and intends to provide insight in the European issues and approach towards creating a more reliable information infrastructure, including technological R & D and legislative harmonization, intended to underpin the global perspection of the Information Society."--Rand abstracts
A new Persian Gulf security system by Andrew Rathmell( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine the options for a post-Saddam Persian Gulf security system. A fundamentally new Iraqi regime is necessary but, the authors argue, insufficient for lasting Gulf security. The authors analyze the strategic challenges of Gulf security and outline the disadvantages to the United States and to the region of today's heavy dependence on a forward U.S. military presence and readiness to fight increasingly risky expeditionary wars. They argue that two alternative models for the Gulf, a unilateral U.S. attempt to impose liberal democracy or a return to an old-fashioned balance-of-power approach, will not work. Instead, they suggest that a multilateral U.S.-European effort to build a more robust intra-regional balance of power, underpinned by broad political reform around the Gulf, could lay the basis for long-term stability

Three years after : next steps in the war on terror( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three years after 9/11, many studies by scores of institutions have been undertaken to find ways of dealing with the challenge of terrorism. With the approach of the third anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the RAND Corporation decided to hold a conference to share the results of its recent studies with government officials, military officers, congressional staff, foundations and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), foreign embassy representatives, and the public at large

"Medicare has instituted a prospective payment system (PPS) for patients receiving post-acute care (PAC). Prospective payment gives facilities incentives to provide care efficiently, since they can keep any difference between the set payment and their costs. However, this also gives facilities incentives to change their care and practice patterns in other ways and to change their coding practices to increase revenue. This report examines the cumulative effects of PAC payment system changes, specifically, effects on the Home Health Agency Interim Payment System, the Skilled Nursing Facility Prospective Payment System, the Home Health Agency Prospective Payment System, and the Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility Prospective Payment System. Access to care is measured by examining the changes in use of these facilities since implementation of PPS. The study focuses on elderly Medicare patients discharged from acute care facilities, with a diagnosis of hip fracture, stroke, or lower extremity joint replacement. Models are used to predict the probability that patients will go to a PAC location before and after each payment system was enacted. The authors find that the effects of each payment system differed, but they note that, overall, most of the payment system changes that were intended to contain costs had the effect of decreasing the use of the site of care directly affected. But, in many cases, they also had the effect of increasing the use of alternative care sites. These changes do not appear to have affected the severely ill more than others"--Http://www.rand.org/pubs/technical_reports/TR259.html (as viewed on 03/09/2012)

Engaging the board : corporate governance and information assurance by Aarti. Daman, Stephanie Anhal( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report, prepared for and funded by the Information Assurance Advisory Council, analyzes the relationship between corporate governance and information assurance. The study examines the ways in which information assurance can be embedded into corporate risk management processes in the changing corporate governance environment. Corporate governance now calls for effective management of risks but board-level awareness is not yet being translated into effective controls. This study outlines the ways in which information assurance can be embedded into corporate risk management practices and how companies can be incentivized to adopt good practices

U.S. policy options for Iraq : a reassessment by Olga Oliker( )

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

Iraq is the most pressing foreign and security policy issue that the United States faces today. Continued failure to make Iraq stable and secure threatens to disrupt the Middle East not by catalyzing the spread of democracy but by exporting instability and conflict. If violence continues, Iraq's neighbors will use the country as a theater in which to pursue their own goals, including those at odds with Iraqi and U.S. interests. Iraq will remain a training ground for terrorist groups, threatening U.S. and allied security. Continued conflict in Iraq not only will remain extraordinarily costly in terms of U.S. lives and resources, but will also damage the credibility of the United States and the efficacy of U.S. forces. It also feeds perceptions around the world that the United States is engaged in a "war on Islam." The U.S. government needs to consider alternative strategies and approaches for reducing the violence in Iraq. Even if policy makers choose not to make major changes, adjustments to current policies might help improve the effectiveness of the U.S. effort. In light of the continuing violence in Iraq, U.S. policy makers continue to reexamine policy options and their repercussions. This monograph assesses a number of approaches that the U.S. government can consider in its efforts to reduce sectarian violence and stabilize Iraq, and presents recommendations that may help increase the likelihood of success. It also considers possible next steps to take, whether these efforts succeed or fail. The analysis in this monograph is based on more than a year of research, which included travel to the region and extensive interviews with U.S., Iraqi, and other specialists, analysts, and officials, as one component of the project "The U.S. Air Force Role in the Middle East." It involved a multidisciplinary team of researchers who brought their expertise in political, economic, and military strategic analysis to these important questions

The RAND history of nation-building( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This two-volume set examines United States and United Nations nation-building missions since World War II. Its purpose is to analyze military, political, humanitarian, and economic activities in post-conflict situations, determine key principles for success, and draw implications for future nation-building missions. The first volume, America's Role in Nation-Building: From Germany to Iraq, draws lessons from America's experiences in rebuilding Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan and suggests how these lessons might be applied to the reconstruction of Iraq. Volume two, The UN's Role in Nation-Building: From the Congo to Iraq, contains the lessons learned from eight UN cases: Belgian Congo, Namibia, El Salvador, Cambodia, Mozambique, Eastern Slavonia, Sierra Leone, and East Timor, and also examines the nation-building effort in Iraq
Establishing law and order after conflict by Seth G Jones( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Providing security and reconstructing internal security institutions is a key component of nation-building operations. As the U.S. military's Field Manual 3-0731 Peace Ops notes, these tasks are vital to establish "a secure environment" in order to "create the conditions for other political, economic, and humanitarian peace building activities." They are also vital to lay the foundations for a strong and legitimate state. Consequently, this study asks two major questions: How successful have U.S. and allied efforts been in reconstructing internal security institutions? What are the most important lessons for current and future operations? To help answer these questions, we examine data from efforts to reconstruct internal security in Kosovo, Afghanistan, and Iraq. We then compare the results with data from six other cases in which the United States has helped reconstruct security institutions during nation-building missions: Panama, El Salvador, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, and East Timor
America's role in nation-building : from Germany to Iraq by James Dobbins( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation America's Role in Nation-Building reviews more than 50 years of U.S. efforts to transform defeated and broken enemies into democratic and prosperous allies. The authors conclude that rebuilding Iraq will be difficult but possible, and use historical perspective to illuminate today's headlines. The authors, led by veteran diplomatic troubleshooter James Dobbins, draw lessons from America's experiences in rebuilding Germany, Japan, Somalia, Haiti, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan in order to extract best practices in nation-building and suggest how these lessons might be applied to current and future endeavors, particularly the reconstruction of Iraq. Although each of the seven cases analyzed in this volume offers unique elements, the authors find areas where comparisons might be useful. In particular, they quantify and compare measures of nation-building input (such as troops, time, and economic assistance) and output (including democratic elections and increases in per capita gross domestic product). This book should interest anyone trying to better understand nation-building efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan by placing today's headlines in historical context. It should also interest defense and policy decisionmakers, analysts and students of international affairs, and others concerned with the role of the United States, other nations, and the international community in post-conflict situations
