New 3D Approach to Foreign Policy Report Launched!

2011 February 10

The CPRF Final Report: A 3D Approach to Foreign Policy has just been released. The Conflict Prevention and Resolution Forum (CPRF) is a project of Search for Common Ground, 3D Security and a consortium of Washington think tanks and universities.

The forums meets monthly and engages in discussions like:

  • The Role of the Military in Peacekeeping
  • Conflict Resolution & Negotiation in Latin America: Opportunities & Obstacles
  • Renegotiating an Effective Non-Proliferation Regime
  • Inclusion in Peace Processes: Who Should Have a Seat at the Table?
  • Children in Armed Conflict
  • Isolation vs. Engagement: When Diplomats Do Their Job.
  • Toward a Bi-Partisan Foreign Policy: What Can Religious Leaders Contribute
  • Investing in Peace: Taking Conflict Resolution and Development to Scale

This collection of reports is from a year-long special series of CPRF forums concerning development, defense and diplomacy (the 3D’s).

Do development funds and diplomacy bend hearts and minds toward political leaders abroad, giving the U.S. short-term access to natural resources or protecting geopolitical interests related to global power dynamics? Or are development and diplomacy fundamentally about building a shared vision of freedom, participatory governance, and human rights?   Does civil society have a role in security sector oversight, or are civil society groups simply implementers of a government-defined foreign policy?

The final report maps a variety of answers to questions like these, across the political spectrum.

    The report looks wonderful! So glad to see that it made its way into the world. (And the new blog design looks great, too.)
