Peace is a never-ending process, the work of many decisions by many people in many countries. It is an attitude, a way of life, a way of solving problems and resolving conflicts. It cannot be forced on the smallest nation or enforced by the largest. It cannot ignore our differences or overlook our common interests. It requires us to work and live together.

~Oscar Arias Sanchez

In the book, Ms. Bilmes and her co-author W. Scott Gould argue that the country cannot prosper without a strong, highly functioning federal workforce. They call for an investment of $10 billion to improve recruiting, training and management of the federal workforce , predicting that investment will yield $300 to $600 billion in productivity gains. The book is published by Brookings Institution Press and can be ordererd at http://www.brookings.edu/press/Books/2008/peoplefactor.aspx

On May 12, EPS Fellow Bill Hartung joined Christopher Paine of the Natural Resources Defense Council's Nuclear Program and Ingrid Drake of the Project on Government Oversight to discuss Lost in Transition, The Costs and Consequences of the Pending Program to Modernize the US Nuclear Weapons Complex.

Despite President Obama's recent pledge to seek a world free of nuclear weapons, the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration plans to spend tens of billions of dollars to upgrade the nation's nuclear weapons complex. Why is this happening, and what can be done about it? The panel discussed the future of US nuclear policy and the security risks posed by the current weapons complex.

The Straus Military Reform Project works to inform the public about our high-cost weapons that are huge performance disappointments. These weapons also contribute to the negative trends that have beset our defenses for decades: a larger defense budget means forces that are smaller, older, and less ready to fight.  This new video, in which experts discuss the F-22 Raptor's history and flaws, features EPS Fellow Winslow Wheeler, Danielle Brian of the Project on Government Oversight(POGO), and Colin Clark of DoD BUZZ.

Institute of Religion, Culture and Peace, Payap University, Chiangmai, Thailand offers a PhD in Peacebuilding.

The worldwide increase of violent and potentially violent conflicts in recent decades has given rise to a number of programs in the field of Peace Studies at several major universities.  These programs research and study the various causes of violence, and the ways and means of attempting to resolve them. In addition to research and study centers, organizations devoted to the specific purpose of mediating conflicts through dialogue and other means have also been established.  

Ideally, these theoretical and practical aspects of peace work should complement each other and thereby increase the chance of success in bringing peace in the world.  Unfortunately, this is seldom the case.  There seems to be a disconnect between theory and practice, resulting in fewer successes than there should have been considering the resources and energy put into this work. This program will consist of a rigorous study of the theoretical side of Peace Studies combined with experiential fieldwork in the area of conflict transformation and resolution.  The objective is to develop ways in which theory and practice can be combined in ways that provide a better and more cohesive grounding for both theoretical peace studies and actual peacebuilding. 

Rather than being “study for study’s sake,” it will be “study for practice’s sake.”  Thus, it is analogous to advanced academic programs provided by schools of medicine, social work, music, and architecture.  Reflective study resulting in a thorough knowledge of theories of peacebuilding is the starting point of the program; this is then followed by and combined with critical evaluation and the development of new improved theories.

On April 24, 2009, the European Parliament recommended complete nuclear disarmament by 2020, through the “Model Nuclear Weapons Convention” and the “Hiroshima-Nagasaki Protocol.” The Hiroshima-Nagasaki Protocol is complementary to the NPT and receives growing support from cities, governments and civil society around the world. As of April 28, 2009, there were 769 signatories (http://www.2020visioncampaign.org/pages/462/) to the “Cities Appeal in support of the H-N Protocol” from 45 countries. They range from the Mayors of London, Luxembourg, Rome and Stockholm in Europe to Sapporo (Japan), San Francisco (USA), Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Cape Town (South Africa) and Toronto (Canada). And on June 23, 2008, the US Conference of Mayors at its 76th annual meeting in Miami, Florida unanimously adopted a far-reaching resolution entitled “Support for the Elimination of All Nuclear Weapons by the Year 2020” supporting the Hiroshima-Nagasaki Protocol.

Bullet Terrorist Incidents Continue to Rise Globally
The mid-year update of the American Security Project's report on global terrorism trends, “Are We Winning?” continues to paint a troubling picture.  The report, released on April 29, showed several trends that raise serious concerns about the effectivess of US counterterrorism policy. These include a dramatic increase in Islamic violence in the Middle East, a worsening situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and new “hot spots” of violence in Somalia and Russia, as well as a dampening of the initial “Obama effect” in the Muslim world.

Economists for Peace and Security is proud to announce the release of a report on the Bush Administration’s outer space policy. The report, Space, Security and the Economy, warns that the present policy of space dominance could transform outer space into a military battleground.

Official US policy asserts the right to deny any nation access to space if its actions are “perceived” to be hostile. This policy, together with other actions such as withdrawal from the ABM treaty and the ongoing development of weapons intended to attack objects in space, could lead to the deployment of weapons in space. If the US stations weapons in space other nations are likely to do the same, and we will be faced with an arms race in space.

The report concludes that no one can prevail and all stand to lose in an arms race in space. Among other consequences would be negative effects on the growing scientific and commercial uses of space, and on the economy. In particular, private investors are unlikely to place additional resources at risk in a vulnerable area of potential military conflict.

The report calls for changes in the policy of space dominance, greater transparency in military space spending, and detailed information about government and commercial space activities.

To view a PDF of the report, visit http://www.e/psusa.org/publications/papers/spacesecurity.pdf.

The American Clean Energy And Security Act of 2009 (HR2454), also known as the Waxman-Markey climate and energy bill, was introduced in mid-May "to create clean energy jobs, achieve energy independence, reduce global warming and transition to a clean energy economy."

The bill includes a cap-and-trade global warming reduction plan designed to reduce economy-wide greenhouse gas emissions 17 percent by 2020. Other provisions include new renewable requirements for utilities, studies and incentives regarding new carbon capture and sequestration technologies, energy efficiency incentives for homes and buildings, and grants for green jobs, among other things. The bill is currently being considered by the House Energy and Commerce Committee and will likely be on the full House floor in June.

More information and the text of the bill can be found at http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h2454/show?gclid=CLbA9qHi3JoCFQxGkwodeXCZ2g

Many conservatives are opposing the bill on the grounds that "cap and trade will be bad for local economies", that "cap and trade hasn't worked in Europe", and that "climate change is not a serious concern".

Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana is among the bill's detractors. http://www.indystar.com/article/20090515/NEWS05/905150400/Daniels+attacks+climate+change+proposal
