Revitalizing International Cooperation: A Bipartisan Agenda

After the Unipolar Moment
Policy Dialogue Brief
January 2008

On November 29-30, 2007, the Stanley Foundation convened a consensus-building exercise with a bipartisan group of accomplished foreign policy experts. Participants were asked to identify policy approaches the next administration can use to work with international partners on key global challenges. Two major sets of issues seemed ripe for agreement across the political spectrum: counterterrorism in connection with the wider battle of ideas and spreading the benefits of globalization.

There was no expectation that the group would neutralize all of their political differences. Instead, they looked for common elements in their approaches. The results of the discussion offer hope that US cooperation internationally can be revitalized with fresh ideas. And while one potential new administration (with its set of advisers) is bound to differ from another, the statement below demonstrates substantial overlap. The text was drafted and reviewed by the participants listed at the end and largely reflects the views of the group, though not every participant agrees with every point.

The Stanley Foundation produced a 13-minute video looking at what needs to be done to stop terrorist groups from acquiring enough fissile material to make a bomb. The foundation talked with over a dozen diverse and distinguished experts from the Nuclear Security Governance Experts Group and the Fissile Materials Working Group to see how today's patchwork of voluntary arrangements can be forged into a long-lasting system. Watch the video.
