Open the publication as pdf Reforming the Working Methods of the UN Security Council:
The Next ACT

Volker Lehmann

In May 2013, some 20 UN member states launched a new initiative to improve the working methods of the UN Security Council. Dubbed ACT, the initiative aims for greater accountability, coherence, and transparency in the Council’s activities. This publication gauges this effort against the backdrop of previous stalled attempts to reform Council working methods and its composition. It concludes that ACT’s modest and seemingly technical proposals cut to the highly-political core issues of who controls representation of member states interests and who controls the reform agenda at the UN.

A Framework for Conflict Prevention in the Context of Large-scale Business Investments

Brian Ganson and Achim Wennmann

The current intensification of mining activities, commercialisation of significant land areas, and undertaking of large infrastructure projects in fragile environments is leading to increased and often violent conflict at the local level. With development, peacebuilding and investment agendas at risk, there is a clear imperative for action. This paper builds the conceptual foundation for an action framework for conflict prevention in the context of large scale business investments in fragile environments. The framework targets multi-sectoral and multi-layered approaches to conflict prevention and risk mitigation; better uptake of the shared responsibilities but differentiated roles of business, government, and development actors; and the building of prevention capabilities.

Open the publication as pdfCommon security with Asia : changing Europe's role from "model" to "partner"

Amitav Acharya

Asia’s security architecture is undergoing a major change, from primarily bilateral alliances to a more complex architecture, featuring both bilateral alliances and multilateral common security (better known in Asia as cooperative security) institutions. These forums have helped to spread cooperative security norms, engage all the major powers of the region with those from the outside (e. g., the US, China, EU, Russia, and India), exercise a degree of restraint on great power policy and behaviour, and promote cooperation in non-traditional security areas.

Open the publication as pdfContemporary world order and approaches to UN peace operations : a South Asian perspective

Changavalli Siva Rama Murthy

The world order is undergoing one of the greatest transitions in its history. The situation at the systemic level is characterized by the persistent tension between unipolarity and multipolarity in the sense that hegemonic actions of the United States (US) are as much a concern as the likely void in case of the decline of its dominance. The evolving framework of global governance in the peace and security area is being tested by the salience of non-traditional causes of conflicts, violence networks involving both governmental and non-governmental actors, and the dehumanizing effects of violent confl icts on civilian victims.

Open the publication as pdf Enmity into Amity: How Peace Breaks Out

Charles A. Kupchan

In day to day conflict and crisis management, internal conflicts and civil wars are on top of the current political agenda. Yet, interstate rivalry and imminent arms races are a constant reminder, that international peace cannot be taken for granted either. Indeed, the pure absence of armed interstate conflict does not amount to stable peace. In his recent book, How enemies become friends Charles A. Kupchan, Professor at Georgetown University and Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations analyses the sources of stable peace. Here, he gives a summary of his core insights as well as a set of corresponding policy recommendations.

Open the publication as pdf No helmets, just suits:
Political missions as an instrument of the UN Security Council for civilian conflict management

Alischa Kugel

The United Nations Security Council has different tools at hand to maintain international peace and security. Yet, beside prominent blue helmets and controversial sanctions, another sophisticated instrument often goes unnoticed: Political Missions. The analysis “No helmets, just suits” has been authored by Alischa Kugel from the Center on International Cooperation (CIC) and appears within the new FES series “United Nations Security Council in Focus” therefore analyses this extremely versatile instrument that can be employed over a whole conflict cycle but also faces a variety of challenges which UN member states have to address if they want to make full use of this tool. The A German version will also be available soon.

Read this publication Elections as Milestones and Stumbling Blocks for Peaceful Democratic Consolidations

Jack Snyder

Post-conflict elections mark a turning point in the recovery and reconstruction of countries emerging from civil war. For some, the first post-conflict election ushers them across a threshold towards the consolidation of peace and democracy, but for all too many, the first election serves as a revolving door, spinning them back into war and authoritarianism. Recent examples of peaceful democratic transitions show that countries with conducive conditions, such as competent and impartial state institutions, have a good chance of not relapsing into violent conflict. Additional facilitating conditions include the absence of deep identity-based divisions within society, prior experience with democracy and a fairly high level of economic development.

Read this publication The Role of Elections in Emerging Democracies and Post-Conflict Countries: Key Issues, Lessons Learned and Dilemmas

Winrich Kühne

Elections have become a major factor in the stabilisation and democratisation of emerging democracies and post-conflict countries. More than a dozen such elections will take place in 2010 and early 2011. However, the risk of a relapse into war and
violence is considerable. Elections in these countries are a tightrope walk between
war and peace, stability and instability. But there is no iron law according to which elections are doomed to fail. There have been a number of success stories in the past two decades. Such elections can be conducted successfully if important lessons are taken seriously and implemented.

Open the publication as pdf The Impact of Organized Crime on Democratic Governance -
Focus on Latin America and the Caribbean

Katharina Hofmann

The erosion of democratic governance due to organized crime is a growing problem in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Since the exacerbation of the already endemic unequal distribution of income is a consequence of the financial crisis, it is expected that organized crime activities such as drug trafficking, human trafficking and arms trade will increase and extend in LAC. The international community has to offer solutions to stop the process of "organized crime penetration" of public and political institutions by tackling the phenomena on three fronts; the economic; the social and the political front that would require the implementation of new political concepts on the national, regional and global level.

Open the publication as pdf Democracy Support: A Fresh Start?

Richard Gowan and Sara Batmanglich

Informed by discussions at an FES/Century Foundation organized international conference on the future of the democratic idea, this paper analyses the challenges of the financial crisis and shifts in global power structures - notably towards China - to democracy support. The paper concludes that the financial crisis creates openings for democracy support and recommends a three track approach to effectively use these opportunities: a direct responds to the crisis targeting particularly the economic vulnerable, specific focus on and support to young democracies and strengthening international organizations.

Read the Briefing Paper by Severine M. Rugamamu Does the UN Peacebuilding Commission Change the Mode of Peacebuilding in Africa?

Severine M. Rugumamu

The UN Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) serves as a dedicated institutional mechanism for post-conflict responds, addressing the fragmentary nature of peacebuilding initiatives by the UN and outside actors. Analyzing the PBC’s strategies in Sierra Leone and Burundi, this paper argues that while the PBC offers rudimentary new approaches to peacebulding, many shortcomings within the PBC and the international development regime need to be addressed. The paper concludes with several policy recommendations, such as greater authority for the PBC in decision-making processes, a revision of the policy framework for war-torn economies, and reformed governance structures in post-conflict societies.

Open the publication as pdf The Comeback of Global Governance.
Ways out of the crisis of multilateral structures

Marc Saxer

After years of crisis, in the face of genuine global problems the climate seems to be changing in favor of global governance. Marc Saxer provides an overview of the major reform initiatives over the past weeks, but also warns against exaggerated optimism. The author identifies the lack of representativeness and effectiveness of multilateral structures along with differing conceptions of global governance among key actors as the main obstacles to overcome the crisis and advocates for a more realistic reform approach for the multilateral architecture. To make good use of the window of opportunity for establishing effective global governance, especially Europeans should accept that not all countries are willing to cede any of their sovereignty, but should rather work to increase the representation of emerging powers in multilateral structures.

Richard Gowan

Drawing from the insights of an international policy debate on peacekeeping overstretch co-organized by FES, Gowan identifies major stresses of the UN and non-UN peacekeeping system. Analyzing the biggest UN (DRC) and NATO (Afghanistan) peace operations, he blames "risk transferral" and mistrust as key obstacles, driving political divergences and operational mismanagement. He proposes five policy options for greater transparency and trust, allowing better peacekeeping strategies, e.g. a head-of-government conference to foster strategic discussion.

Open the publication as pdf Constructive involvement and harmonious world: China's evolving outlook on sovereignty in the twenty-first century

Gao Zugui

The world order of the 21st century will to a large extent depend on China's willingness to join efforts of the international community to tackle state failure and internal violent conflict. Traditionally, China has valued a strict Westphalian definition of sovereignty. Gao Zugui analyses more recent developments in Chinese foreign policy that led to a more flexible and pragmatic approach. He outlines four preconditions under which China is prepared to take part in "constructive involvement", e.g. to engage more effectively in UN peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and the prevention of mass atrocities.

Open the publication as pdf The UN, the AU and ECOWAS-
A Triangle for Peace and Security in West Africa?

Titilope Ajayi

With peacekeeping capacities stretched thin and a new dimension of global-regional cooperation evolving e.g. with the UN-AU hybrid mission in Darfur, new questions arise on the relationship between the UN and (sub-) regional organizations. What role should the global, regional and sub-regional level play in security governance? How to use the comparative advantages of each level while ensuring complementarity and maintaining the primacy of the UN? Titilope Ajayi analyses the relationship between UN, OAU/ AU and ECOWAS in West Africa, presents lessons learnt from joint peacekeeping operations and identifies opportunities for further collaboration. The author concludes that the respective roles must be defined in a common framework, while the principle of reciprocity must inform all future UN-AU and UN-ECOWAS collaborations.

Open the publication as pdf Nuclear Non-Proliferation: An Indian Perspective

Rajesh Rajagopalan

Rajagopalan analyses the strategic calculus of Indian nuclear policy, concluding that the US Indian nuclear deal is unlikely to have major impact on India’s nuclear weapons program. He concludes that though the current crisis in the nuclear non-proliferation regime can affect India also, New Delhi has only limited means to tackle the problem. According to Rajagopalan, the key requirement to deal with the crisis in the non-proliferation regime is consensus among the major powers. Without such a consensus, institutional tinkering will be useless and the current nuclear non-proliferation challenges cannot be met.

Open the publication as pdfCan the NPT Regime be fixed or should it be abandoned?

Ramesh Thakur, Jane Boulden and Thomas G. Weiss

Nuclear issues are back on the global political agenda. Apart from the day-to-day fire fighting, a more wide-ranging debate on how to tackle nuclear challenges has emerged. With this paper by Professors Ramesh Thakur, Jane Boulden and Thomas G. Weiss, FES wishes to contribute to this debate. The authors conclude provocatively that the NPT has passed its use-by date in world politics, creating a situation of “nuclear apartheid” which confronts the world with a highly precarious and unsustainable balance. They anticipate a post-NPT world of either multiplying nuclear weapons states (NWS) or one without nuclear weapons, and explore a potential role of the United Nations in underpinning, shaping, and transforming nuclear orders.

A. H. Nayyar

Nayyar gives an overview of Pakistani measures to strengthen nuclear non-proliferation after the discovery of the A.Q. Khan network. He analyses the strategic framework of Pakistan's nuclear weapons program in relation to India. Nayyar argues that the Pakistani fear of India's conventional superiority informs Islamabad's attitude towards global and regional disarmament and non proliferation initiatives as well as the US- Indian 'nuclear deal'. It is against this strategic risk analysis that the numerous Pakistani disarmament initiatives should be evaluated.

Open the publication as pdfNuclear Non-Proliferation from a Chinese Perspective

Xia Liping

Liping argues from a Chinese perspective for a continued role of the NPT as the main nuclear non proliferation mechanism, but also identifies its main shortfalls and conflicts of interest between major stakeholders. Liping proposes concrete measures to reform the non proliferation regime. He suggests that if the U.S. and Russia would reduce their nuclear warheads to 1,000 respectively, China and other nuclear-weapons states should join the process of nuclear disarmament. According to Liping, China supports the establishment of an internationalized multilaterally controlled nuclear fuel cycle and Beijing would not oppose the revision of Article X of the NPT Treaty. If the U.S. Senate ratifies the CTBT, he suggests the Chinese People’s Congress would ratify it soon.

Many observes see the nuclear non-proliferation regime at the verge of collapse. In the run up to the NPT review conference in 2010, FES wants to contribute to a better understanding of the perspectives of key players. Nicole Stracke analysis of the Gulf perspective is the first of a series of Briefing Papers. Stracke analyses the stragegic frame in which nuclear policies of the Gulf states are situated, and presents the GCC Weapons of Mass Destruction Free Zone initiative. She concludes that the nature of nuclear programs in the region could shift from civilian to military if the non-proliferation regime suffers a setback as a result of one regional state’s success in acquiring nuclear military capability.

The intricate process that led up to the appointment of a UN Special Adviser on R2P sheds a light on the political landscape surrounding the concept. Marc Saxer analyses the political environment and the strategies of the main actors in the struggle over this emerging norm. He points out some shortcomings of the concept and offers policy options to move the agenda. Saxer argues that it will be crucial to find a broad international consensus how to tackle mass atrocities in internal conflicts in order to overcome ideological debates that repeatedly block political decision making in cases where timely action is needed.

Fighting drugs and building peace: towards policy coherence between counter-narcotics and peace building

Barnett R. Rubin/ Alexandra Guáqueta

A frequently overlooked feature of the fight against drugs is the linkages between the production of illegal narcotics and the political dynamics in post-conflict countries. Afghanistan and Colombia are cases in point.Post-conflict situations not only attract the cultivation of crops used for the production of illegal drugs. Events in Guinea-Buissau and Haiti illustrate that the same sad logic applies to the international drug mafia’s selection of trading “hot spots”.It is against this background that a debate has ensued on the policy coherence between the international community’s fight against drugs and its parallel efforts to sustain peace in post-conflict countries.

Reconciliation and Development

Karen Brounéus

In many conflict and post-conflict countries, situations in which peace and justice appear to compete with one another are on the rise.To show how to constructively deal with tensions that can arise was the aim of the international conference in Nuremberg, on 25-27 June 2007, entitled “Building a Future on Peace and Justice”. These Occasional Papers contributed to the preparation of a workshop on Reconciliation at the conference that had been jointly organized by The Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation and FES. Brounéus provides an overview of some key concerns regarding reconciliation in relation to justice, security, and politics respectively, and their policy implications. She introduces recent research on truth commissions and truth telling. Brounéus argues that if security is not provided, the process of reconciliation may risk to backlash in increased violence or in suppression of truth.
