Cooperating for Peace and Security attempts to understand - more than fifteen years after the end of the Cold War, seven years after 9/11, and in the aftermath of the failure of the United Nations (UN) reform initiative - the relationship between US security interests and the factors that drove the evolution of multilateral security arrangements from 1989 to the present. Chapters cover a range of topics - including the UN, US multilateral cooperation, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), nuclear nonproliferation, European and African security institutions, conflict mediation, counterterrorism initiatives, international justice and humanitarian cooperation - examining why certain changes have taken place and the factors that have driven them and evaluating whether they have led to a more effective international system and what this means for facing future challenges.

Im Jahr 2001 hielten die Anschläge vom 11. September die Welt in Atem. Zehn Jahre danach wird mit diesem Band erstmals umfassend Bilanz gezogen, welche Wirkungen vom Terror des 11. September ausgingen. Untersucht werden Entwicklungen in verschiedenen Staaten, Auswirkungen auf die zwischenstaatlichen Beziehungen und Transformationen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens. Die Effekte auf internationale Organisationen werden ebenso analysiert wie die unterschiedlichen Wirkungen auf Öffentlichkeit, Medien, Religion und Kultur. Dabei dokumentiert der Band die tiefen Spuren, die der 11. September hinterlassen hat. Er zeichnet nach, auf welchen Gebieten zuvor schon beobachtbare Tendenzen verstärkt oder abgeschwächt wurden, aber auch, welche neuen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen hier erst ihren Ausgang nahmen. Die politische Kraft dieses gewalttätigen und symbolträchtigen Tages wird dabei in ihren vielen Gestalten deutlich.

Afghanistan, Irak, Libyen, Ukraine, Syrien, Türkei, Nordkorea – wir scheinen in einer neuen Weltunordnung zu leben. Carlo Masala fragt, wie es so weit kommen konnte und sucht nach Antworten auf die globalen Krisen. Im Westen werden für das Chaos zumeist die Handlungen von mehr oder minder bösen Gegnern verantwortlich gemacht, sei es der IS, Russland oder China. Tatsächlich jedoch trägt der Westen ein gerüttelt Maß an Verantwortung dafür, dass die Welt aus den Fugen geraten ist – und zwar nicht erst seit dem Amtsantritt Donald Trumps. Carlo Masala analysiert die aktuelle Lage und plädiert für einen realistischen Blick auf die Außenpolitik, der nicht bei den Kategorien Gut und Böse stehen bleibt.

Law and Practice of the United Nations: Documents and Commentary combines primary materials with expert commentary demonstrating the interaction between law and practice in the UN organization, as well as the possibilities and limitations of multilateral institutions in general. Each chapter begins with a short introductory essay describing how the documents that ensue illustrate a set of legal, institutional, and political issues relevant to the practice of diplomacy and the development of public international law through the United Nations. Each chapter also includes questions to guide discussion of the primary materials, and a brief bibliography to facilitate further research on the subject. This second edition addresses the most challenging issues confronting the United Nations and the global community today, from terrorism to climate change, from poverty to nuclear proliferation. New features include hypothetical fact scenarios to test the understanding of concepts in each chapter. This edition contains expanded author commentary, while maintaining the focus on primary materials. Such materials enable a realistic presentation of the work of international diplomacy: the negotiation, interpretation and application of such texts are an important part of what actually takes place at the United Nations and other international organizations. This work is ideal for courses on the United Nations or International Organizations, taught in both law and international relations programs.

Is the United States still a "superpower"? How are the rising powers establishing themselves in international politics and security? What is the future of global stability? For over a decade, Bruce Jones has had a front-row seat as the emerging powers—principally China, India, and Brazil, but also Turkey, Indonesia, Korea, and others—thrust themselves onto the global stage. From Delhi to Doha to Beijing to Brasilia, he's met with the politicians, diplomats, business leaders, and scholars of those powers as they craft their strategies for rising influence—and with senior American officials as they forge their response. In Still Ours to Lead, Jones tells a nuanced story of American leadership. He artfully examines the tension between the impulse to rival the United States and the incentives for restraint and cooperation among the rising powers. That balance of rivalry and restraint provides the United States with a continued ability to solve problems and to manage crises at roughly the same rate as when American dominance was unquestioned. Maintaining the balance is central to the question of whether we will live in a stable or unstable system in the period to come. But it just so happens that this challenge plays to America's unique strength—its unparalleled ability to pull together broad and disparate coalitions for action. To succeed, America must adapt its leadership to new realities.

The election of Barack Obama has raised major expectations in Europe and opened up new opportunities for dealing with global challenges. Authored by leading experts from both sides of the Atlantic, this book provides an authoritative analysis of the most topical issues facing the agendas of the European Union and the United States. The volume addresses the global questions of multilateralism, the economy, disarmament, and climate change, as well as key regional issues including Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, Africa, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The book concludes that it is imperative that Europeans and Americans seize "the Obama moment" in order to capitalize on the urgency of acting now. They will also need to move to a new paradigm of the EU-U.S. relationship and NATO's role within it--one that takes account of the fact that the West needs "the Rest" to deal with the most pressing issues of our time. "An important contribution to the debate on how we can renew our transatlantic partnership for a new age.... This book lays out the challenges and choices we face. It deserves to be widely read."--Javier Solana, high representative for the EU Common Foreign and Security Policy "A timely contribution to the much-needed dialogue regarding transatlantic relations. Both sides need to understand each other better and this volume helps its readers understand the causes of discord and the key issues to be addressed." --Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security adviser to President Carter Contributors include Alexandra Bell (Ploughshares Fund), John Bruton (Ambassador, EU Commission to the United States 2004-09), Tom Cargill (Chatham House), Joseph Cirincione (Ploughshares Fund), James F.
