Talking to terrorists : making peace in Northern Ireland and the Basque country by John Bew( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Northern Ireland's peace agreement, which put an end to IRA aggression, has been widely admired as a model of conflict resolution ... Many now believe that intelligence agencies should follow the lessons of Ulster in their efforts at brokering peace. Yet two difficult questions remain: has history provided us with a clear picture of Northern Ireland's peace process, and does the 'talking cure' work with all democracies? The authors present a history of Northern Ireland's transition from aggression to peace, but also demonstrates how these events developed quite differently than many proponents of the Northern Ireland model believe. They then contrast their findings against incidents in Spain's Basque country during the same period. The authors point to a range of variables at play in the Ulster negotiations, such as the selection of state representatives, the information provided by intelligence agencies, the wielding of hard power, and the wider democratic process. Above all, they draw a line between talking to terrorists who believe their strategy is succeeding and making overtures to those who realize their aims are no longer attainable through violent means"--Publisher description
The Muslim Brotherhood and the West : a history of enmity and engagement by Martyn Frampton( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the history of the relationship between the world's largest and most influential Islamist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the western powers that have dominated the Middle East, the United Kingdom and the United States. It examines the relationship that has existed in the shadows of public attention and scholarly interest; where it has been considered, this subject has been dominated by conspiracy theory and hyperbole. By contrast, this book draws on the memoirs and publications of the Brotherhood (in both Arabic and English), as well as extensive archival research in both London and Washington to offer an in-depth understanding of how relations between this movement and the West have oscillated between a posture of enmity (on both sides), to moments when engagement has been contemplated and occasionally attempted. In the process, the book offers an important new perspective on the history of the Brotherhood, in particular highlighting the centrality of ideas about 'the West' to the group's worldview. At the same time, the book offers fresh insight into the nature of Anglo-American foreign policy making in the Middle East over the course of the twentieth century.--

The new netwar : countering extremism online by Martyn Frampton( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Policy Exchange's new report provides a comprehensive analysis of the struggle against online jihadist extremism - what we call "the new Netwar". This issue is vital to UK national security and there is a danger that the blood and treasure we are investing in defeating ISIS in Iraq and Syria will produce little more than a pyrrhic victory unless we act to defeat the virtual threat. At present, we are certainly not winning the war online. The spate of terrorist attacks the UK suffered in the first half of 2017 confirmed that online extremism is a real and present danger. In each case, online radicalisation played some part in driving the perpetrators to violence. As a society, we are struggling to grasp the extent of the challenge and also appropriate ways of responding. It is clear that the status quo is not working. It is time for a new approach. Policy Exchange has worked with a team of experts to provide fresh insight into the debate around online extremism. In this report we explore a range of policy options for interdicting the supply-chain of extremist content - at both ends

Talking to the Taliban : hope over history? by John Bew( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aim of this report is to examine the evolution of the idea of "talking to the Taliban", analyze its underlying drivers and assumptions, and capture key lessons that may be of use in future conflicts when talks with insurgents will again be on the agenda. To date, efforts to talk to the Taliban have been a failure. Talking to the Taliban became official policy by osmosis rather than deliberation and strategic choice. Talks with the Taliban have been characterised by wishful thinking, bad timing and poor management. The strategic rationale for talks has never been clear. The real 'game changer' in Afghanistan is the departure of ISAF troops, not a moderate awakening within the Taliban movement. Negotiations face a number of fundamental obstacles which have never been adequately addressed, and which are markedly similar to the Soviet experience in Afghanistan
