Nordic-Baltic-American Cooperation

Kurt Volker

The broader transatlantic relationship is increasingly described in terms of crisis. The European Union as a whole is focused on financial crisis management. And there is disappointment in Washington over Europe's inability to step up as a more serious security partner.Meanwhile, the Nordic-Baltic region stands out as a stable, responsible and dynamic part of Europe. As net contributors to prosperity, foreign policy management, development assistance and security, the region shows that market democracy still works, that a positive outward vision of the world is still possible and that there is still important work ahead for the transatlantic institutions. In fact, the region offers a model of how to retain U.S. engagement in Europe.ContentsIntroductionExecutive SummaryChapter 1: A Europe Whole and FreeChapter 2: Embedding and IntegrationChapter 3: Russia and the EastChapter 4: Energy SecurityChapter 5: US EngagementAddendum: Nordic-Baltic-US Energy Cooperation: Any Progress Expected?Contributors include Urban Ahlin (MP, deputy chairman of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the Swedish Parliament), Per Augustsson (CTR), Erik Brattberg (CTR), Ian Brzezinksi (Atlantic Council), Matthew Bryza (former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan), Veronika Wand Danielsson (Swedish ambassador to the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council), Daniel P.

Role Reversal

Anne C. Richard

After Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast of the United States on the morning of August 29, 2005, offers of help from other countries poured in on the US Government. Not used to being a recipient of foreign aid, the federal government replied slowly and with mixed signals. This monograph tells the story of these foreign contributions and the U.S. response. Lessons from this experience suggest that plans for a vetting mechanism should be drawn up now so that it is widely understood before the next large-scale crisis hits. In addition, the international community should adopt a uniform list of goods for stockpiling and use in a crisis, and should meet to reach agreement on the best ways to respond to crises. Effective crisis response is an important part of national security.

Beyond the Border and Across the Atlantic

Loretta Bondi

In 2000, the Advent of Vicente Fox Quesada to the presidency of Mexico promised to change the course of Mexican foreign policy. It would open the country to outside influences and engage the nation in a new activism on the international scene. Mexico's new voice would be heard at the United Nations in support of international human rights and multilateralism. It would resonate at the Organization of American States to forge an area of democracy, durable peace and security in the western hemisphere. Mexico would seek to inject a new vision and a new sense of purpose in its relationship with the US, and work with the European Union to foster or enhance both common goals and Mexico's own development agenda. Mexico's experiment is of particular interest for some of its innovative characteristics. In its attempt to break with its isolationist past, Mexico enlisted support from the international community to help the country through its transition to democracy, and to anchor it to the evolving security debate in the post-September 11th 2001 environment. Beyond the Border and Across the Atlantic chronicles crucial choices and defining moments of Mexico's unique experiment in the international foreign and security arena, and describes President Fox's fascinating roller-coaster of successes and failures on the multilateral and bilateral scene.

Five Dimensions of Homeland & International Security

Esther Brimmer

This book considers the intersections between homeland and international security and the implications of these connections for preparedness. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, many analysts abandoned traditional strategic tools such as deterrence and dissuasion. Yet policymakers need to consider a range of effective actions to enhance preparedness. The possibility of catastrophic, high consequence events demands that policymakers go beyond piecemeal extensions of current policies and devise comprehensive defense-in-depth. They could develop policy in "5D"—by integrating new approaches to five dimensions of policy: deterrence, dissuasion, denial, diplomacy, and defense. The 5Ds could give policymakers ways to "project resilience" with others abroad as we build resilience at home.
