The United States and the international criminal court : national security and international law by Sarah B Sewall ( Book )
12 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A growing international consensus supports the idea of holding individuals responsible for the most egregious violations of human rights such as genocide. This consensus lies behind the recent efforts to create an International Criminal Court (ICC). The United States, however, has refused to support the ICC, citing concerns that the Court may pose a threat to national security. This volume brings legal, historical, military, and political perspectives to an examination of U.S. concerns about the ICC. The contributors assess not only the potential national security risks that would be associate
MARO : mass atrocity response operations : a military planning handbook by Sarah B Sewall ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Mass Atrocity Response Operations (MARO) Project focus is to enable the United States and the international community to stop genocide and mass atrocity as part of a broader integrated strategy by explaining key relevant military concepts and planning considerations. Failure to act in the face of mass killings of civilians is not simply a function of political will or legal authority; the failure also reflects a lack of thinking about how military forces might respond. States and regional and international organizations must better understand and prepare for the unique operational and moral challenges that military forces would face in a MARO. Such an effort offers several benefits, including the creation of a wider range of potentially effective military responses. Advance planning with possible partners would greatly facilitate coalition operations. Developing more effective intervention options may help strengthen deterrence of would-be perpetrators. By highlighting the complexities of responding militarily after violence against civilians has already become widespread, MARO planning should increase policymakers' appreciation of the value and economy of preventive efforts. Since prevention will not succeed every time, some states may nonetheless find themselves conducting a MARO. They may initiate intervention or adjust the mission of forces that deployed for other purposes, where mass violence against civilians becomes a primary challenge. The concrete and practical challenges of using military forces to halt ongoing mass atrocities through a MARO are addressed. The Project developed operational concepts, a tailored planning guide, tabletop exercises, and other tools for military institutions and political actors. While military force will not always be required to halt mass atrocity, the MARO Project helps make credible, effective options more likely and better prepares intervening forces in the event that they are directed to act in this respect. The Project can help shift the policy debate from 'whether' to 'how' to intervene to stop widespread violence against civilians"-- Foreword

The U.S. Army/Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual : U.S. Army field manual no. 3-24 : Marine Corps warfighting publication no. 3-33.5 by United States ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the U.S. military invaded Iraq, it lacked a common understanding of the problems inherent in counterinsurgency campaigns. It had neither studied them, nor developed doctrine and tactics to deal with them. It is fair to say that in 2003, most Army officers knew more about the U.S. Civil War than about counterinsurgency. This volume was written to fill that void. The result of unprecedented collaboration among top U.S. military experts, scholars, and practitioners in the field, the manual espouses an approach to combat that emphasizes constant adaptation and learning, the importance of decentralized decision making, the need to understand local politics and customs, and the key role of intelligence in winning the support of the population. The manual also emphasizes the paradoxical and often counterintuitive nature of counterinsurgency operations: sometimes the more you protect your forces, the less secure you are; sometimes the more force you use, the less effective it is; sometimes doing nothing is the best reaction. A new introduction by Sarah Sewall, director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, places the manual in critical and historical perspective, explaining the significance and potential impact of this revolutionary challenge to conventional U.S. military doctrine. An attempt by our military to redefine itself in the aftermath of 9/11 and the new world of international terrorism, "The U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual" will play a vital role in American military campaigns for years to come
Peace Operations : A Department of Defense Perspective ( )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper deals with the Presidential Decision Directive (PDD) of May 1994 establishing US policy toward peace operations. It argues that the Clinton Administration has developed a comprehensive policy to make those operations more selective and effective tools of US national security. Next, it describes the Department of Defense (DoD)'s response to the demands of peace operations as regards the doctrine for military operations, the training of the troops, the professional military education, the equipment requirements, the force composition and readiness. It also highlights the contribution of American troops to UN operations: organisational support, expertise assistance, training of UN forces.--SCAD summary

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper provides several interventions at a panel, followed by an open discussion. The following issues are discussed:ʹ- The political and military lessons of the interventions in Somalia and the former Yugoslavia: the need for a timely and robust intervention, the failures in the UN Secretary-General's command and control structure, the limits of the action of regional organizations, the growing disparity between the available resources and the demand for military intervention and humanitarian action.ʹ- How to develop US peacekeeping policy that meets the demands of the post-Cold War period and also garners the support of Congress and the public?ʹ- Alternative models for the UN's deployment of military force, as regards the source and the nature of the troops, their financing, and their need for special training.--SCAD summary
