Cash on Delivery

Nancy Birdsall

Cash on Delivery (COD) Aid proposes a new approach to foreign assistance—one that links aid payments more directly to desired outcomes to promote accountability, responsibility, learning, and strengthening of local institutions.Using an example from education, this book outlines how COD Aid could work in practice. It offers guidance on the identification of measurable outcomes and mechanisms for verification and the management of a variety of risks. The authors provide practical advice, documents, term sheets, and other supporting material that donors and potential recipient governments can use as a basis for designing and implementing COD Aid in particular settings.It also shows how COD Aid could be applied to other sectors and includes guidance for assessing whether COD Aid is achieving its goals.

Beyond the Border and Across the Atlantic

Loretta Bondi

In 2000, the Advent of Vicente Fox Quesada to the presidency of Mexico promised to change the course of Mexican foreign policy. It would open the country to outside influences and engage the nation in a new activism on the international scene. Mexico's new voice would be heard at the United Nations in support of international human rights and multilateralism. It would resonate at the Organization of American States to forge an area of democracy, durable peace and security in the western hemisphere. Mexico would seek to inject a new vision and a new sense of purpose in its relationship with the US, and work with the European Union to foster or enhance both common goals and Mexico's own development agenda. Mexico's experiment is of particular interest for some of its innovative characteristics. In its attempt to break with its isolationist past, Mexico enlisted support from the international community to help the country through its transition to democracy, and to anchor it to the evolving security debate in the post-September 11th 2001 environment. Beyond the Border and Across the Atlantic chronicles crucial choices and defining moments of Mexico's unique experiment in the international foreign and security arena, and describes President Fox's fascinating roller-coaster of successes and failures on the multilateral and bilateral scene.

The European Union Constitutional Treaty

Esther Brimmer

Europeans have long sought to form "an ever closer union" through the European Union and its predecessors. Can a closer union be based on the constitutional treaty signed at the June 2004 summit meeting? What will it mean for Americans? This volume offers perspectives on these questions as it reviews the process by which the treaty was concluded, compares it to the American constitution, and discusses the treaty's prospects for passage. Contributors include Stefan Fröhlich (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), Stephen Breyer (associate justice, U.S. Supreme Court), Robert Cottrell (Financial Times), Esther Brimmer (Center for Transatlantic Relations), Günter Burghardt (Delegation of the European Commission to the U.S.), and Lamberto Dini (senator, Republic of Italy).

The Strategic Implications of European Union Enlargement

Esther Brimmer

Enlargement will change the nature of the European Union, but how will it affect international affairs? The EU and its member states command significant economic resources and have launched a Common Foreign and Security Policy. Yet the demands of taking on ten new countries, concluding a constitutional treaty to accommodate decisionmaking, and dissipating acrimony after the war in Iraq, all complicate efforts to develop and enhance the EU's international presence. This book considers the impact of enlargement with respect to the EU's perception of its international role in specific geographical regions. The contributors discuss a range of global issues, including the environment, food policies, development, terrorism, and the use of force. Contributors include Stefan Fröhlich (University of Erlangen-Nuremberg), Hanna Ojanen and Kristi Raik (Finnish Institute of International Affairs), Ulrike Guerot (German Marshall Fund Berlin Office), Stanislaw Tekieli (Center for Eastern Studies, Warsaw), Michael Leigh (European Commission Directorate General for External Affairs), Henri Barkey (Lehigh University), Anne-Marie LeGloannec (Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales, Foundation Nationale des Sciences Politiques), Stanislav Tkachenko (St. Petersburg University), Nicolae Idu (European Institute of Romania), Ulrich Weisser, Esther Brimmer, Chantal de Jonge Oudraat, and David Michel, (Center for Transatlantic Relations, Johns Hopkins –SAIS), Daniel Gros (CEPS), Angel Ubide (Tudor Investments), Patrick Cronin (CSIS), and Antonio Missoroli (EU Institute for Security Studies).

Defending the Gains?

Esther Brimmer

If a nation's fledgling democracy is in trouble, what should outsiders do? Esther Brimmer examines the effectiveness of U.S. and European responses when other countries' newfound democratic gains begin to erode. Brimmer asks tough questions about democracy promotion in transatlantic diplomacy. Is it actually helping to deepen democracy around the world? Efforts have focused primarily on ways to encourage democracy where it does not exist, or to consolidate democracy where it has taken hold. But what can and should the United States and Europe do when democracies infringe upon basic democratic principles, or there is a general erosion of democracy? Is there a role for outsiders when democracy is under threat? Should the U.S. and EU support democracy or just stability? Do they need to confront a backlash against democracy or "democracy promotion"?
