Strategy for Peace 1984. The Stanley Foundation US Foreign Policy Conference Report (25th, Annapolis, Maryland, October 11-13, 1984).
Stanley Foundation, Muscatine, IA.
Proceedings are summarized of a conference in which 62 foreign policy professionals met to recommend strategies for peace in the areas of U.S.-Soviet competition in the Third World, space weapons and arms control, objectives of U.S. economic and security assistance, and the United States and UNESCO. Four sections focusing on each of these areas are presented. Section 1 examines the history and development of U. S. and Soviet policies toward the Third World, identifies regions with the greatest risk of direct conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union, evaluates the consequences of U.S.-Soviet competition on individual nations and on the world community, and formulates options for U.S. policymakers. The second section deals with fundamental disagreements about U.S. objectives in space, ways to increase satellite survivability, policy alternatives, antisatellite (ASAT) capabilities and ballistic missile defense (BMD) issues, and methods for improving the arms control debate. The third section describes how participant examination of U.S. foreign aid objectives began with an identification of the major problems in the Third World to which economic and security assistance should be directed. Discussion focused on desirable objectives of foreign aid, security and development, and considerations in achieving aid objectives. The final section focuses on pros and cons of the United States' withdrawal from UNESCO. Sixteen suggestions for the United States, for UNESCO member states, and for the UNESCO organization itself conclude the report. (LH)
