    • Sustainable Security in Afghanistan Requires Sweeping U.S. Policy Overhaul


      from AmericanProgress Added 12 0 0

      http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2009/03/swords_ploughshares.html While there have been many studies on the best military approaches to take in the Afghanistan conflict, there have been comparatively few efforts to examine how the United States and its allies should best use their foreign assistance resources to achieve success. The Sustainable Security Program at the Center for American Progress commissioned an innovative scenario exercise to test how much “bang for the buck” the U.S. government could achieve in stabilization and reconstruction operations if it undertook many of the foreign assistance reforms advocated in previous CAP reports. Over the course of three days, we learned that robust foreign assistance reform should be seen as a key national security priority. Dr. Reuben Brigety and Dr. Patrick Cronin discuss this new approach to sustainable security in Afghanistan.

      • Helpem Fren - Rebuilding a Pacific Nation


        from AidWorthy Added 59 0 0

        The Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI) was a $2 billion project, funded mostly by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and AusAID (2003-2013).  In 2003 the Australian Prime Minister - John Howard finally agreed to send troops and advisers to a ‘failed’ Pacific island state - the Solomon Islands. What happened next will change international aid and diplomatic aid projects forever. Sir Alan Kemakeza, Prime Minister of Solomon Islands, made a last ditch effort to save his country. In 2003 he flew to Canberra and asked John Howard to intervene. Howard ultimately agreed and sent troops, police and government advisers to rebuild the Solomon Islands. Why did Australia and the region intervene, and was it ultimately successful? What ramifications does it have for regional diplomacy in future?

              • Globalisation and Inequality - Professor Douglas McWilliams


                from Gresham College Added 22 0 0

                Looking at globalisation and its impact on the world's distribution of income, it is argued that, while in individual countries it may raise inequality, the overall impact of transferring incomes from richer countries to poorer ones means that for the world as a whole, the process actually reduces inequality. Paradoxically, globalisation can reduce global inequality through the transfer of income from rich to poor countries, and inequality may rise as richer members of societies cope better with the massive change. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/how-does-globalisation-affect-inequality-globally Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.
