Iceland's Security Identity Dilemma: The End of a U.S. Military Presence

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.6
In September 2006, the U.S. military withdrew its last troops from Iceland, ending a 55-year presence and leaving Iceland---without a military of its own---the sole country in NATO without territorial defense. Iceland is now in a transition phase, the end of which is not yet clear. In the process, Iceland is reexamining its security and institutional ties to Europe and the United States and reevaluating the basis of its foreign policy.

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.25
Recent developments in the U.S. Supreme Court and Congress designed to respond to the war on terror threaten to undermine the rule of law at home rather than combat the threat of extremism abroad. What does the future hold?

Twenty-five Years of HIV/AIDS: South Africa's Policy Challenges

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.61
A quarter-century since the first deaths from AIDS were recorded in South Africa, the nation has yet to implement a successful national prevention and treatment program.

Transformation of the U.S. Japan Alliance

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.85
Junichiro Koizumi's final term as Japan's prime minister ended in September 2006, and with this change of leadership follows intense scrutiny about Japan's future security policy. Japan has placed primacy on its alliance with the United States at the expense of other foreign policy initiatives, but resists Washington's efforts to lobby for a wider international role for the Japanese military. The future holds multiple options, each worthy of consideration.

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.103
The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) has become an important actor in Eurasia with tremendous geopolitical potential. It currently lacks the internal cohesion and capabilities usually found in strong multilateral security institutions, but the organization's growing importance warrants NATO initiatives to develop direct ties with it.

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.119
Fifty years since the island comprised of ethnic Malay, Chinese, and Indian citizens won its independence, Malaysia continues to struggle to define its national identity.

For almost 60 years, India's conflict with Pakistan has blocked its aspirations for strategic dominance of the subcontinent. But India's economic, military, and political advantages over its rival are increasingly stark. Whether or not the Kashmir dispute is resolved, India will continue to move toward great power status, as long as New Delhi can manage relations with Islamabad to ensure stability.

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.147
In the past few decades Europe has changed its demographic composition, becoming home to more than 20 million Muslims. This change raises important issues regarding the definition of European identity, the nature of citizenship, and the social and cultural integration of diverse populations. The future of Europe, and the future of Islam within Europe, hinges on the degree to which these issues can be successfully resolved.



Citizenship and Pluralism: The Role of Government in a World of Global Migration

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.169
In a world of unprecedented levels of migration across national borders, state governments must come to grips with the incorporation of diverse members. To successfully integrate newcomers and maintain political cohesion among disparate groups, host countries should look to embrace a model of citizenship that both legally and symbolically welcomes immigrants.



Race, Class, and the Emergence of an Immigrant Rights Movement in the United States

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.185
Since the 1996 passage of legislation limiting immigrant access to social benefits---and the racial, ethnic, and socio-economic rhetoric that accompanied it---the immigrant rights movement in the United States has grown from a nascent social movement to a critical mass. In a post-9/11 national security environment and in the face of a Congressional push for stronger immigration legislation, will the movement succeed in championing a comprehensive reform agenda?



Migration within Africa: The View from South Africa

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.203
The demographic changes of the past three decades in South African cities mirror larger patterns of migration within the African continent as a whole.

Redefining Energy Security in the Persian Gulf

Fri, 23 Feb 2007 10:16:42 EST

Volume 31, Number 1, Winter 2007 p.215
Political posturing about energy security often equates energy security with energy independence. The global energy market is in reality becoming increasingly interdependent, however, and definitions of energy security more complex. As a result, major consumers have a strong and continuing interest in ensuring political stability in the Persian Gulf.
