Psychological responses to the new terrorism : a NATO-Russia dialogue by V. N Krasnov( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terrorism is to create a state of terror and fear. Therefore it is important to study the psychological factors and to understand and mitigate our response to terrorism. It is the creation of states of mind, of reducing people's resilience and will to resist, and causing such psychological and social pressure that eventually the political aims of a terrorist group will be fulfilled. This book is not about the prevention of terrorism, but concerned with the consequences of acts of terror and their impact o populations. It describes what citizens, professionals and governments can do to mitigate the consequences. The focus is less on the 'timeless' or 'universal' trauma reactions captured by labels such as post traumatic stress disorder, but more on cultureand place specific reactions. A comparison is made between the responses visible in Russia (large scale adversity) and the western reaction (a cultural shift towards an age of anxiety and risk aversion). Also 'new' terrorism (chemical, biological and nuclar terrorism) is discussed, but in practice most terrorist attacks remain steadfastly conventional. A last topic is communication; such as communication between government and its citizens; between terrorists themselves, between terrorists and citizens an between citizens themselves. People talking to each other in the immediate aftermath of terrorist incidents gives much needed support and reassurance. More attention needs to be given to assisting these normalising processes and more needs to be done to afeguard such communications in the immediate aftermath of a terrorist attack

Lessons to be learned from non-proliferation failures and successes : human and societal dynamics by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Lessons to be Learned from Non-Proliferation Failures and Successes( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major topics discussed in Lessons to be Learned from Non-Proliferation Failures and Successes are divided into thematic parts and cover a wide range of issues, both from functional and from regional points of view. The first part of the book extends from assessing 'sticks' and 'carrots' in the non-proliferation arsenal of the world community, to drawing a more precise line between non-proliferation and counter-proliferation measures, and further to comparing UN-based and national level sanctions and eforts aimed at reassuring non-proliferation. Special sections are devoted to Nuclear Weapon-Free Zones and 'negative assurances' in their relations with non-proliferation, as well as to risks of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) terrorism and of further poliferation because of abundance of not so well-managed fissile materials in the hands of nuclear powers. The second part of the book deals with the lessons learned (or that need to be learned) from the concrete regional cases of proliferation or its risk

Language engineering for lesser-studied languages by NATO Advanced Study Institute on Recent Advances in Language Engineering for Low- and Middle-Density Languages( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technologies enabling the computer processing of specific languages facilitate economic and political progress of societies where these languages are spoken. Development of methods and systems for language processing is, therefore, a worthy goal for national governments as well as for business entities and scientific and educational institutions in every country in the world. Significant progress has been made over the past 20-25 years in developing systems and resources for language processing. Traditionally, the lion's share of activity concentrated on the 'major' languages of the world, defined not so much in terms of the number of speakers as with respect to the amount of publications of various kinds appearing in the language. Thus, much of the work in the field has been devoted to English, with Spanish, French, German, Japanese, Chinese and, to some extent, Arabic also claiming strong presence. The term 'high-density' has been used to describe the above languages. The rest of the languages of the world have fewer computational resources and systems available. As work on systems and resources for the 'lower-density' languages becomes more widespread, an important question is how to leverage the results and experience accumulated by the field of computational linguistics for the major languages in the development of resources and systems for lower-density languages. This issue has been at the core of the NATO Advanced Studies Institute on language technologies for middle- and low-density languages held in Batumi, Georgia in October 2007. This book is a collection of publication-oriented versions of the lectures presented there
