Dear Friends and Colleagues,

As summer kicks into gear, CFR has some terrific books for the beach and beyond. Our fellows have had a productive year, publishing six books so far. Adam Segal's The Hacked World Order examines the geopolitical implications of the internet on governments, war, and society. In War by Other Means, Robert D. Blackwill and Jennifer M. Harris outline how the United States could, as other countries do, integrate economic and financial instruments into its foreign policy. To better understand the role the United States has played in the Middle East since the mid-1940s, Ray Takeyh and Steven Simon's The Pragmatic Superpower explores the makings of the contemporary Middle East. In Morning in South Africa, John Campbell looks at the many challenges postapartheid South Africa faces, but remains hopeful for its institutions and future. State Capitalism, by Joshua Kurlantzick, considers the marriage of central economic planning with free market competition in developing countries, arguing that, despite its mixed record, state capitalism ultimately leads to a decline in democracy. And How America Stacks Up, by Ted Alden and Rebecca Strauss, analyzes where the U.S. economy excels, and where it falls short, compared to other advanced economies.

Be sure to also take a look at the reports we've published recently, below.

Best,

Discussion Paper
In the Search for Tech Employees, Look to Women  
 

Increasing women's access to tech jobs in low- and middle-income countries can help solve labor shortages, empower women, and grow the economy, argue Catherine Powell, adjunct senior fellow for women and foreign policy at CFR, and Ann Mei Chang, chief innovation officer and executive director of the U.S. Global Development Lab at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). To do so, the public and private sector should work together to address the multiple barriers women and girls face.

Why the Free Flow of Data Matters
Cyber Brief
Why the Free Flow of Data Matters  
 

The flow of data across international borders creates jurisdictional challenges and causes international tensions. Increasingly, countries have responded by imposing new requirements to store data locally, threatening cross-border data flows, which generate approximately $2.8 trillion of global gross domestic product each year. Senior Fellow for Digital Policy Karen Kornbluh argues that the United States should take the lead in addressing these tensions. Read more »

Seizing IMET's Potential

How USAID Can Help Build Nations
Policy Innovation Memorandum
Looking to USAID to Help Build Nations

Kirkpatrick senior fellow for national security studies, and Michael Miklaucic, director of research, information, and publications at National Defense University's Center for Complex Operations. To embrace a state-building mission, however, USAID will need to be transformed. Read more »

The G20's Future, in China's Hands

Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies and the Asia Global Institute convened a workshop in Hong Kong to assess the issues facing the G20, why the group had fallen short of expectations in recent years, and whether China's leadership in 2016 provides an opportunity for renewal.
