Crisis in Syria: commentary from CIC.. The Syrian crisis has become a major test for international cooperation in crisis management.. After Kofi Annan, resigned his post as envoy, the United Nations has placed veteran negotiator and former Algerian foreign minister Lakhdar Brahimi as its new envoy to Syria.. Will Mr.. Brahimi have any success or will Syria descend further into civil war? CIC Staff has written extensively on the multilateral dimensions of the crisis and has been cited in or authored the following articles:.. CIC Authored Articles.. Title.. Source..

Contracting the Commanders: Transition and the Political Economy of Afghanistan's Private Security Industry.. October 2012.. Over the past decade the United States and the international community have funded an unprecedented private security industry in Afghanistan.. As a result, this industry has become entangled with the Afghan political economy, as international spending has been implicated in funding informal armed groups and commanders.. Considerable uncertainty remains as Afghanistan approaches the 2014 deadline for assuming national security responsibilities.. Matthieu Aikins.. argues that with the expected decrease in international aid and changes in the national economy, future stability of Afghanistan depends on ensuring a political settlement among the country's diverse powerbrokers and networks..

The future of the development agenda is the subject of intensifying debate, with the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) due to expire in 2015.. Reaching agreement looks increasingly challenging, with the potential for sharp divisions between key actors on the scope and depth of the post- 2015 agenda.. In this context, CIC's..

Resources, risk and resilience: scarcity and climate change in Ethiopia.. August 2012.. Global concern is currently mounting once more about the impacts of a more resource-scarce world, with particular attention focused at present on the risks of a renewed global food price spike following a spate of extreme weather in the US and around the world.. Corn and soyabean prices last week broke the record they had set during the 2008 food spike, while wheat prices have increased by 50% over just the last five weeks.. These global trends have the potential to cause major problems for a country like Ethiopia, where wheat is by far the country's biggest import by value.. Against this backdrop, CIC is today publishing.. Resources, Risks and Resilience: Scarcity and climate change.. in Ethiopia, by CIC senior fellow.. Alex Evans.. , sets out a daunting set of scarcity-driven challenges for Ethiopia – but also a hopeful vision of how the government, and its international partners, can work to manage scarcity risks while taking advantage of new opportunities.. The International Role in Libya's Transition | August 2011 – March 2012.. July 2012.. The international role in Libya has not featured a large-scale post-conflict presence..

Beyond the Millennium Development Goals Agreeing to a Post-2015 Development Framework.. How to establish a zone free of nuclear weapons and other WMDs.. The consensus decision reached at the 2010 Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) to convene a conference in 2012 on the establishment of a zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East (MEWMDFZ) was, perhaps, the most salient outcome of the quinquennium gathering.. It is also one of the most challenging undertakings for a number of strategic, technical and political reasons.. Despite the bleak odds stacked against the establishment of the MEWMDFZ, there is an argument for engaging in serious discussions about it and carrying out negotiations on it.. This paper suggests a number of practical options to prepare for a constructive 2012 conference process.. Read the full paper..

  • Title: Center on International Cooperation
    Descriptive info: CIC's.. program has been a leading source of reliable data and policy analysis of the major trends affecting UN and regional organizations' response to conflict and crisis.. Its independent analysis of the role and effect of peacekeeping and political operations has had a significant impact on both policy and political support for those missions at a time of growing uncertainty.. After a decade of continuous expansion, historic levels of demand and increasing operational complexity pose risks to the viability of peace operations.. Setbacks in high-profile missions have coincided with military overstretch and growing fiscal austerity, while missions that have achieved interim stability lack a clear transition strategy towards sustainable peacebuilding and development.. Peacekeeping has also had to confront significant political strains between the UN Security Council and other key actors, especially due to the limited participation of troop, police, and financial contributors in the decision-making architecture.. At the same time, the evolving use of a range of alternative models of peace operations, including the hugely expanded use of special political missions, is both creating new options and adding complexity to policy debates.. At the UN and elsewhere, new questions about the relative merits of traditional peacekeeping versus lighter options create an ongoing demand for policy-relevant research.. The Global Peace Operations program aims to provide analysis on these issues and to improve conceptual and operational linkages across political missions, peacekeeping operations, and peacebuilding.. Research Overview.. The program's flagship research project is the Annual Review of Global Peace Operations, the most comprehensive report of its kind, informing policy-makers, the media, academics, and peacekeepers on strategic trends, mission developments, and deployment data for both UN and non-UN peace operations.. The 2011 volume the series' sixth focuses on managing transitions: both from peacekeeping to peacebuilding, and in the face of diminishing national consent.. Through its new..

  • Title: Center on International Cooperation
    Descriptive info: Thematic Series on More Effective Peace Operations.. UN peacekeeping is increasingly under strain – over-deployed, heavily-mandated and under-resourced.. This state of overstretch, coupled with continuing demand for new missions, presents a fundamental strategic challenge for the UN and its members.. To adapt to the challenges facing peace operations, the international community must examine options for institutional improvements in UN peacekeeping as well as strategies for responding to emerging global trends.. In support of this objective, the Center on International Cooperation and the.. Canadian Permanent Mission to the United Nations.. are cooperating to convene a series of panel discussions to explore critical issues confronting the future of UN peace operations..

  • Title: Center on International Cooperation
    Descriptive info: CIC s extensive work on security sector reform (SSR) assesses and strengthens international capacity by supporting SSR policy development by the UN and other actors; undertaking research to assess the operational capacity of UN SSR programs in peace operations; and, examining the role of non-state actors in providing security in fragile states.. The project s current work focuses on defense sector reform (DSR), which is a part of broader SSR efforts.. While effective, accountable, efficient, and professional national security forces and oversight institutions are recognized as a vital part of securing sustainable peace and stability, and are an essential benchmark for the withdrawal of peacekeepers, DSR has traditionally not been a core competency for the UN.. Where it has done so, DSR engagement has been.. ad hoc.. Nonetheless, a growing number of UN political and peacekeeping missions are being mandated to support national governments with professionalization or development of armed forces and oversight institutions..
