On behalf of the entire editorial staff, it is my pleasure to present the 35th anniver-
sary edition of the Fletcher Forum oflWorldAffairs. Over the past three-and-a-half decades,
we have provided analysis and insight on the most pressing issues of the day. Our pages
have been graced by luminaries and academic heavyweights from Kofi Annan and Susan
Rice to Tom Lantos, Alex de Waal, and Gareth Evans. Today, I am proud to continue this
great Fletcher tradition and unveil Issue 35.1.
We begin with an examination of the diplomatic future of the European Union
after the Lisbon Treaty, in conversations with BARONESS CATHERINE ASHTON, high
representative of the Union for foreign affairs and security policy, and AMBASSADOR
JOAO VALE DE ALMEIDA, the head of the Delegation of the European Union to the
United States. Historian, analyst, and journalist THOMAS DE WAAL completes our
European coverage with a discussion of foreign involvement in the South Caucasus.
JARRET BRACHMAN, counterterrorism expert and managing director of Cronus
Global, teams with ALIX LEVINE, analyst for the Anti-Defamation League, to explore the
phenomenon that is Anwar al-Awlaki, the latest and greatest celebrity jihadist, and his role
in the radicalization of potential terrorists through mass media. The other side of public
diplomacy is the subject of a piece by KATHERINE BROWN and TOM GLAISYER, both
from Columbia University, as they offer advice on strengthening U.S. statecraft.
An unlikely trio of states and their diverse circumstances are featured in three sepa-
rate pieces on India, Haiti, and Venezuela. JOHN CIORCIARI, professor at the University
of Michigan's Ford School of Public Policy, reviews India's quest for great-power status and
the global implications for a fragile region. BRENDAN MCNULTY, a fellow at the Inter-
American Development Bank, covers post-disaster education in Haiti, while Venezuelan
journalist ALEJANDRO TARRE details relations between Hugo Chivez and the legisla-
tive branch in the context of Venezuela's September elections.
JOSEF ACKERMANN, chairman of the management board and the group execu-
tive committee of Deutsche Bank, returns our focus to the global level with an introspec-
tive take on the future of the financial system and the challenges it holds. Particularly
apropos to the financial sector is a piece by ASTIER ALMEDOM, a professor at The
Fletcher School, on the nature of resilience. DAVID CARMENT and YIAGADEESEN
SAMY, of Carleton College, complete our features with an in-depth examination of the
Millennium Development Goals as a metric for fragile states, and AMY WOOLF, of the
Congressional Research Service, rounds out the issue with her review of The Twilight of
the Bombs, the latest offering from Richard Rhodes.
I hope you will find this issue as informative and useful as I have. If a particular piece
resonates with you, I invite you to share your opinion by submitting a letter to the editor.
Producing a journal is not an easy task, and without a strong team it would be impossible.
Thank you to the administration, faculty, and staff of The Fletcher School of Law and
Diplomacy, the writers who contributed to this issue, and to the entire editorial team at the
Forum-especially our miracle-working Managing Editors, Elise Crane and Tim Ridout.
