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"?

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).

Power Politics

Esther Brimmer

This volume details ideas presented at a 2008 conference on the impact of energy security issues on international political affairs. In particular, the book focuses on the human rights policies of countries in the transatlantic region. The authors discuss how European and American leaders have addressed their most important energy security vulnerabilities and what effects their responses have had on their foreign policies. The book considers whether changing the mix of energy sources and concomitant vulnerabilities might liberate international human rights advocacy and other international affairs issues.

Five Dimensions of Homeland & International Security

Esther Brimmer

This book considers the intersections between homeland and international security and the implications of these connections for preparedness. After the terrorist attacks of 9/11, many analysts abandoned traditional strategic tools such as deterrence and dissuasion. Yet policymakers need to consider a range of effective actions to enhance preparedness. The possibility of catastrophic, high consequence events demands that policymakers go beyond piecemeal extensions of current policies and devise comprehensive defense-in-depth. They could develop policy in "5D"—by integrating new approaches to five dimensions of policy: deterrence, dissuasion, denial, diplomacy, and defense. The 5Ds could give policymakers ways to "project resilience" with others abroad as we build resilience at home.
