"Modes of Regional Conflict Management: Comparing Security Cooperation in the Korean Peninsula, China-Taiwan, and the South China Sea"

Book Chapter

By Rosemary Foot, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005-2006

"The United Nations, Counter Terrorism, Human Rights: Institutional Adaptation and Embedded Ideas"

Journal Article, Human Rights Quarterly, issue 2, volume 29

By Rosemary Foot, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005-2006

How resilient is the human rights norm in the counter-terrorist era? This question is explored through examining the record of two of the UN Security Council's counter-terrorist committees. The article argues that, initially, the procedures of these two committees damaged human rights protections, an outcome criticized by UN officials, human rights NGOs, and certain, mainly middle-power, states. Using the UN as a platform, they made the argument that a failure to ensure that anti-terrorist measures were in accordance with human rights standards would be counter-productive. As a result, Committee procedures have evolved and now give greater attention to the human rights consequences of counter-terrorist action.

"Chinese Strategies in a US-Hegemonic Global Order: Accommodating and Hedging"

Journal Article, International Affairs, issue 1, volume 82

By Rosemary Foot, Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005-2006

"China's economic, political and military influence has been increasing at a time when the United States, as sole superpower, dominates the international order. This article outlines Chinese elite perspectives on the current global order and shows not only how these perceptions have affected China's policies towards the United States, but also how they have influenced China's regional and global policies more broadly...."
