Securing a Democratic Future for Myanmar
Council Special Report
Securing a Democratic Future for Myanmar  
 

When the National League for Democracy, led by Aung San Suu Kyi, assumed power in Myanmar, the party inherited the long-standing problems that developed during the country's half-century of military dictatorship. To ensure the success of Myanmar's historic democratic transition, former Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Myanmar Priscilla A. Clapp argues that the United States should ease sanctions, expand assistance programs, work to address the statelessness of the Rohingya Muslim minority, and assist in building up Myanmar’s judicial system.

Council Special Report
Xi Jinping on the Global Stage  
 

CFR Senior Fellow Robert D. Blackwill and Chairman of the Asia Group Kurt M. Campbell analyze the rise of Chinese President Xi Jinping and call for a new American grand strategy for Asia in this Council Special Report. The authors analyze how economic growth and nationalism have long provided legitimacy for the Communist Party, and argue that as growth declines, Xi may enact policies to stoke nationalism and allay the risk of domestic political instability.

Growing Stress on Jordan
Contingency Planning Memorandum Update
Growing Stress on Jordan  
 

In 2013, the Contingency Planning Memorandum "Political Instability in Jordan" warned that the biggest threat to the stability of Jordan came from local grievances eroding the regime's core tribal base of support. In this update, Robert Satloff and David Schenker of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy argue that although the risk of domestic unrest has diminished, the potential for spillover from the Syrian conflict has grown, posing an increasing threat to Jordan.

Renewed Confrontation in Georgia
Contingency Planning Memorandum
Renewed Confrontation in Georgia  
 

U.S.-Russia relations are already at their lowest point since the end of the Cold War, and a renewed confrontation between Russia and Georgia would make matters considerably worse. David J.

Cyber Brief
Protecting Data Privacy With User-Friendly Software  
 

Protecting the privacy of user data from unauthorized access is essential for business executives, policymakers, and users. Although the pace of targeted attacks and massive data breaches is increasing, strong privacy protection software is often difficult for nonexperts to use and adoption rates are low. In this Cyber Brief, Sara "Scout" Sinclair Brody, executive director of Simply Secure, explains how promoting and improving open-source software can go a long way toward strengthening privacy online.

Geopolitical Fallout From China’s Slowing Growth
Workshop Report
Economic and Geopolitical Fallout From China’s Slowing Growth  
 

In 2010, when China's economy was expanding at an annual rate of more than 10 percent, analysts pondered the ripple effects of another decade of spectacular Chinese growth. Five years later, reality caught up with the Chinese miracle, and the world is recasting its question: What will China's economic slowdown mean for the globe? CFR's Asia program and Maurice R. Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies explore possible answers. Read more »

Avoiding a Global Food Price Crisis

War by Other Means
A CFR Book
War by Other Means  
 

"Despite having the most powerful economy on earth, the United States too often reaches for the gun instead of the purse," contend CFR Senior Fellows Robert D. Blackwill and Jennifer M. Harris in War by Other Means: Geoeconomics and Statecraft. They argue that the United States should strategically integrate economic and financial instruments into its foreign policy—what they define as geoeconomics—or risk losing ground as a world power.

The Pragmatic Superpower

The Pragmatic Superpower  
 

In The Pragmatic Superpower, Ray Takeyh, CFR senior fellow, and Steven Simon, lecturer at Dartmouth College, reframe the legacy of U.S. involvement in the Arab world from 1945 to 1991 and shed new light on the makings of the contemporary Middle East. Cutting against conventional wisdom, the authors posit that when an inexperienced Washington entered the turbulent world of Middle East politics after World War II, it succeeded through hardheaded pragmatism—and secured its place as a global superpower.

State Capitalism
A CFR Book
State Capitalism  
 

The increase in state capitalism across the globe, CFR Senior Fellow Joshua Kurlantzick argues, has contributed to an overall decline in democracy. When a state controls firms, the government increases its advantage over the rest of society. State Capitalism offers the sharpest analysis yet of what state capitalism's emergence means for democratic politics around the world. Kurlantzick also explores the rebalance to Asia and security aid in a recent CFR infographic. Read more and order a copy »

A CFR Book
The Hacked World Order  
 

CFR Senior Fellow Adam Segal shows how governments use the web to wage war and spy on, coerce, and damage each other. Segal describes how cyberattacks can be launched by any country, individual, or private group with minimal resources in mere seconds, and why they have the potential to produce unintended and unimaginable problems for anyone with an Internet connection and an email account.

Senior Fellow Thomas J. Bollyky reveals that U.S. trade deals may not be spurring the large drug-price increases and shifts away from lower-cost generics in U.S. trading partners that many predicted, in a new interactive report »
