Essays on leadership by Boutros Boutros-Ghali( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict invited five world leaders, Boutros Boutros-Ghali, George Bush, Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Desmond Tutu, to consider leadership and preventing deadly conflict. Each offers a different perspective, yet all conclude that an individual leader's choices are crucial to creating the conditions that enhance or undermine peace. This volume highlights the capacities of international leaders. These leaders can help mobilize great financial or military resources, build international coalitions, and create a constituency for prevention. The Commission believes that prevention should be on the agenda of every head of state and government meeting and all foreign and defense ministerial gatherings. The international community should champion and reward good governance, especially in countries struggling towards greater democracy. International leaders can call attention to the problem of intergroup violence and tap into latent public inclination toward prevention. They have the scope to explain the need for prevention. They can help build the political will necessary to mount an effective response to complex emergencies and to help people prevent violence before it erupts. Addressing this point in his essay, former United Nations Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali highlights the need for vision, communication, and cooperation
The ambivalence of the sacred : religion, violence, and reconciliation by R. Scott Appleby( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terrorists and peacemakers may grow up in the same community and adhere to the same religious tradition. The killing carried out by one and the reconciliation fostered by the other indicate the range of dramatic and contradictory responses to human suffering by religious actors. This book explains what religious terrorists and religious peacemakers share in common, what causes them to take different paths in fighting injustice, and how a deeper understanding of religious extremism can and must be integrated more effectively into our thinking about tribal, regional, and international conflict

"In this concise volume, Timothy Sisk defines power sharing as practices and institutions that result in broad-based governing coalitions generally inclusive of all major ethnic groups. He identifies the principal approaches to power sharing, including autonomy, federations, and proportional electoral systems." "In addition, he highlights the problems with various power-sharing approaches and practices that have been raised by scholars and practitioners alike, and the instances where power-sharing experiments have succeeded and where they have failed. Finally, he offers some guidance to policymakers as they ponder power-sharing arrangements."--Jacket

Promoting democracy in the 1990s : actors and instruments, issues and imperatives : a report to the Carnegie Commission on Preventing Deadly Conflict by Larry Jay Diamond( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research project emanates from the intersection of two long-standing activities, one scholarly and the other oriented toward policy and action. It is informed in part by many years of study of comparative democratic development, particularly in Africa and other regions of what was one termed the "third world". It is also motivated and informed by more than a decade of association with the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), and with a number of other actors on both sides of the democratic assistance relationship: agencies and organizations offering political assistance for democracy, and recipients of that assistance in the civil societies of authoritarian and newly democratic countries.

Civilian-military cooperation in the prevention of deadly conflict : implementing agreements in Bosnia and beyond by George A Joulwan( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the world comes to grips with the realities of a new international system, the prevention of deadly conflict has become a focus of efforts to secure a peaceful, prosperous environment. Conflict prevention is a daunting and complex challenge, embracing operations to avert war, to contain a war once it has begun, and to suppress the renewal of war in the aftermath of a cease-fire or a peace accord. The last of these cases -- the suppression of renewed conflict -- is particularly problematic, because operations are often carried out in an environment of overt hatreds and deep-seated suspicions in the midst of economic and social ruin brought on by the war. Thus, a range of economic, political, military, and social issues must be addressed virtually simultaneously. Suppression of renewed conflict demands, at its most basic level, enlightened and imaginative implementation and coordination of both the civilian and the military aspects of the peace accords. Civilian-military implementation thus becomes the sine qua non for sustaining the cease-fire and for building an enduring peace. In this paper, we will present a set of principles for civilian-military implementation of peace agreements, outline structural-functional imperatives for integrating and coordinating the efforts of the international community, and suggest that the key to prevention of a renewal of deadly conflict lies in the establishment of an effective civilian-military implementation staff (CMIS)
