Report of a Study of the Pacific Circle Consortium. [Final Report].
A five-part cumulative report details the activities of the Pacific Circle Consortium. Section 1, on the origins of the Pacific Circle, describes the consortium on three levels: participating organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, participating institutions, and development teams. In section 2, the involvement of each of the participating institutions is discussed under the headings of origins, relations with policy group representatives, institutional structure and function, the development group, description of recent work, evolution of the work, future activities, maintenance conditions, and emergent issues. Section 3 discusses types of activities emerging and a proposal for a common project. Section 4 focuses on legitimation of the Consortium by the OECD. It suggests that the Consortium is reaching a point where it will soon be regarded as legitimate in its own right. Section 5 analyzes the conditions necessary for the Consortium to achieve autonomy and become self-sustaining. Considered are both internal and external interactions of the Consortium and external threats to survival internally. (LP)
