by Micah Zenko, Sarah Kreps

by Adrian Karatnycky, Lee Feinstein with Lee H. Hamilton, David Dreier

Threats to Democracy

by Morton H. Halperin, Elizabeth Frawley Bagley with Madeleine K. Albright, Bronislaw Geremek
Democratic governments, international organizations, and nongovernmental organizations have responded poorly and often at cross purposes when democracies are threatened by coups or erosions of the democratic process, concludes an independent Task Force led by two of the world's leading pro-democracy advocates, former Secretary of State Madeleine K. Albright and former Foreign Minister of Poland Bronislaw Geremek. Yet support for democracy is consistent not only with the ideals of the world's democracies but also with their interests and security. Democratic states are "less likely to breed terrorists or to be state sponsors of terrorism," the report concludes, and more likely to be "active participants in the global economy."

by Scott G. Borgerson
Seaborne commerce remains the linchpin of the global economy. And beyond trade, a host of other issues, ranging from climate change and energy to defense and piracy, ensure that the oceans will hold considerable strategic interest well into the future. In this report, Scott G. Borgerson explores an important element of the maritime policy regime: the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. He examines the international negotiations that led to the convention, the history of debates in the United States over whether to join it, and the strategic importance of the oceans for U.S. foreign policy today.
