Global governance 2025 : at a critical juncture( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Korean and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report analyzes the gap between current international governance institutions, organizations and norms and the demands for global governance likely to be posed by long-term strategic challenges over the next 15 years. The report is the product of research and analysis by the NIC and EUISS following a series of international dialogues co-organized by the Atlantic Council, TPN, and other partner organizations in Beijing, Tokyo, Dubai, New Delhi, Pretoria, Sao Paulo & Brasilia, Moscow, and Paris."--Publisher's website
EU security and defence : core documents 2004( )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This fifth volume of Core documents lists the European Union's decisions and actions in the field of security and defence taken during 2004. Texts concerning ESDP are collected in the first part of this volume: they include in particular the establishment of the European Defence Agency, the decisions on battle groups and the European gendarmerie, the launch of the EUJUST operations in Georgia and Althea in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the 2010 Headline Goal and the substantial development of the civilian aspect of crisis management. However, the first part also deals at length with the fight against terrorism, the Union₂s relations with Iran, the Middle East, Iraq and Africa, and the various Commission initiatives relating to financing of research and restructuring of the arms market. The second part of this work is devoted solely to the Constitutional Treaty; it includes all of the sections relevant to defence, but also to foreign and security policy in the broader sense. As for the title of the work itself, it reflects the joint decision to hold all future European Council meetings in Brussels; the capitals of the countries holding the presidency are therefore no longer mentioned on the cover of this collection
Partnerships for effective multilateralism : EU relations with Brazil, China, India and Russia by Ummu Salma Bava( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper addresses the strategic partnerships that the EU seeks to set up with four important actors, whose ascent is changing traditional patterns of power and governance: Brazil, China, India and Russia. These partnerships, among other instruments, can play a critical role in reconciling multilateral governance and emerging multipolarity

One year on : lessons from Iraq by Ronald D Asmus( )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Chaillot Paper takes stock of the consequences of the Iraqi war one year after the initiation of the military campaign in March 2003. Rather than provide a definitive or conclusive verdict on the implications of the war, its objective is to offer a number of viewpoints concerning developments in its aftermath. Given the divergences that the war created, not only between the United States and Europe but also within the EU, we invited a wide spectrum of authors to participate in this project in order to get as representative a picture as possible. To do so, twenty-one authors from Europe and the United States were asked to respond to five questions covering different aspects of international relations. Respondents were asked to give their views on the consequences of the war in Iraq on: the fight on terrorism; the Greater Middle East; the European Union's role as a global actor; transatlantic relations; the international system
Effective non-proliferation the European Union and the 2005 NPT review conference by Darryl A Howlett( )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 153 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
Enter the EU battlegroups by Gustav Lindstrom( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 152 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
Nuclear weapons after the 2010 NPT review conference by Ian Anthony( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Chaillot Paper is published on the eve of the eighth review conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). The NPT remains a central pillar in the global quest to prevent the spread of destabilising armament programmes and a nuclear war. But the 'grand bargain' on which it is based is increasingly under strain."--Page 4 of cover

Why Georgia matters by Dov Lynch( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 149 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
Iranian challenges by Katajun Amirpur( )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 148 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
Global views on the European Union by Amitav Acharya( )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 148 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
Protecting the European homeland : the CBR dimension by Gustav Lindstrom( )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Sarin attacks carried out by the Japanese cult Aum Shinrikyo in Matsumoto and Tokyo highlighted the threat posed by non-state actors equipped with non-conventional weapons. Although the number of casualties was limited, the attack signalled a cause for concern. In 2001, the United States was struck by bioterrorism shortly after 11 September. Weapons-grade anthrax was distributed by post, killing five people, making 17 others ill, forcing evacuation of Capitol Hill, shutting down postal delivery, provoking widespread use of prophylactic antibiotics and damaging the economy. An already shocked nation discovered that it was vulnerable to a new kind of threat. While the probability of a chemical, biological or radiological (CBR) attack on the European continent is low, the ramifications of such an attack could be high. Recent arrests in European countries suggest that the likelihood of a CBR attack may be increasing. This Chaillot Paper analyses EU-wide activities in the area of chemical, biological or radiological protection. It provides an overview of the threats facing the EU, summarises policies and preparedness at both the national and EU levels, and offers numerous policy recommendations to increase preparedness across Europe
What Russia sees by D. A Danilov( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 147 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( )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 147 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?
Bush's legacy and America's next foreign policy by Marcin Zaborowski( )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EUISS's transatlantic researcher looks back at US foreign policy over the last 8 years. He argues that whether Obama or McCain wins the upcoming presidential election, there will be considerable continuity in America's foreign policy. The paper focuses on US relations with Iraq, Iran and China, as well as touching on Europe and Russia
Enforcing non-proliferation : the European Union and the 2006 BTWC review conference by J. P Zanders( )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 146 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
Towards a European defence market by Erkki Aalto( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EU governments are gradually coming around to the idea that they need to open up their defence markets, especially at a time when growing budgetary constraints clash with the increasing need for sophisticated military equipment. Governments have already agreed to the Code of Conduct on Defence Procurement introduced by the European Defence Agency in July 2006, but the EDA cannot force governments to comply with the code. Also, the protectionist attitude of Member States derives from the fact that they regard defence procurement as an area that overlaps with national sovereignty. The European Commission is currently proposing new procurement and trade directives aimed at streamlining defence market legislation, and it is to be hoped that Member States will respond positively to this initiative. The proposed directives would open up the defence market, improve European cooperation on armaments and lead to a more competitive European defence industry. Plus, in the ongoing debate about the European defence market, the transatlantic defence market should not be forgotten, especially given the increasingly important role that American and European companies play in this arena on both sides of the pond
Enlargement and European defence after 11 September by Jiří Šedivý( )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All three Central European candidates for EU membership have gone through an evolutionary (and learning) process as regards the development of ESDP: from scepticism and worry - that it could undermine NATO - to qualified acceptance and more direct involvement. This evolution can be explained through two parallel processes that the contributors spell out very clearly. On the one hand, the path leading to full NATO membership - along which the three candidates increased their interoperability and actual engagement in multilateral peacekeeping - has broadened their foreign policy perspectives, while the war in Kosovo further convinced them of the centrality of the United States as a military actor and coalition leader. On the other hand, the path leading to EU accession has made them realise that the Fifteen might engage ever more directly in European security, while an American presence could not necessarily be taken for granted any longer. Since early entry to the Union has been and still is a key foreign and domestic policy priority for all three, they have basically decided to tone down their 'Atlanticist' reservations in order not to endanger their negotiating position. However, they have remained ambivalent over the possible implications and the finalité politique of ESDP. The only aspect that the three Central European applicants have criticised throughout has been their initial inclusion in the generic category of 'third' countries, along with other non-Allied candidates and even such non-candidates as Ukraine or Russia. The quest for formal recognition as European allies has been constantly reiterated, and has eventually been partially acknowledged by the Fifteen, although some dissatisfaction with such enhanced 'third-ness' has remained. 11 September has also increased their awareness of the need for a more comprehensive approach to security, encompassing justice and home affairs and policy towards the new neighbours to the East: all three countries would prefer to adopt a flexible approach combining more 'user-friendly' borders with tighter police controls. Finally, the internal EU debate over the future of Europe initially raised keen interest among the élites of Central Europe, and the European Convention has made a special effort to involve the governments and parliaments of all candidates. The early stages of the discussion have so far revealed a certain tension within their delegations between a more communautaire approach that emphasises the common European 'identity' and common interests, and a more intergovernmental reflex that aims at exerting maximum influence over policy and institutions. Such tension is also palpable between and within the contributions to this paper
Looking into Iraq by Martin van Bruinessen( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 143 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
