U.S. government exchange programs are not being coordinated in Japan and India : report to the Director, International Communication Agency by United States( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As part of the 1977 Presidential Reorganization Plan and the Executive order implementing it, the International Communication Agency (USICA) was charged with the responsibility of coordinating the international information, educational, cultural, and exchange programs of the U.S. Government. Exchange programs in Japan and India are large and varied, and involve several Federal departments and agencies as well as private organizations and institutions. GAO evaluated the efforts of USICA missions in Japan and India to coordinate all Government sponsored international exchange programs. GAO found that USICA missions in the two countries were not coordinating the exchange programs of all U.S. Government agencies and that coordination activities in the two countries remained essentially unchanged from those operating prior to the issuance of the Presidential mandate. The missions follow an informal, ad hoc approach in monitoring and sharing information on selected Government exchange programs. Although officials at the missions are involved with programs falling under USICA responsibility, GAO found that they had little information on or knowledge of many of the Government exchange programs operating at the missions. GAO believes it essential that USICA define the limits of the Executive order

A strategy for combatting terrorism by Brian Michael Jenkins( Book )
3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A discussion of measures required to do something effective about terrorism. For the United States, the problem lies mainly outside its borders and there it is a very serious problem. The United States often has only marginal influence over the policies of other governments and therefore over the outcome of such terrorist incidents abroad in which Americans may be involved. The current U.S. approach emphasizes the need for better intelligence; heavier security; a no-concessions policy; effective management of terrorist incidents; and the creation and use of special antiterrorist military capabilities as a measure of last resort. Because the primary concern is international terrorism, strategy must be aimed at seeking international cooperation. This means identifying, isolating, and ultimately modifying the behavior of those states that support terrorists with training, money, weapons, or asylum, or passively tolerate them. Any effective defense against terrorists must be of an international sort, binding together in common policies and actions nations and governments that often have vastly divergent views on almost anything, including some aspects of terrorism
