Ex-Ante: Prioritizing Our Future Volume X, Number 2
Fueled by a seismic shift in global wealth, the emergence of new power structures have altered the dynamics of the international system, giving rise to new priorities that will require innovative ideas and a new approach. Rising to the forefront of policy concerns are global financial stability, nuclear non-proliferation, energy, and the environment. While these issues have been prevalent in the policy realm for decades, recent crises have proven that the stakes are greater than ever, heightening the need for collective action and strong leadership.
Today, against the backdrop of economic uncertainty and fragmented peace, international cooperation and consensus have yet to materialize in a way that significantly improves the status quo. Instead, many leaders have turned inward, focusing on their own domestic stability while significant global issues remain unattended. Ex- Ante serves as a reminder of these concerns in a time when the urgency of the present may overshadow the priorities of our future. The Journal has the distinct pleasure of presenting a variety of viewpoints on this issue, including: former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, Amity Shlaes, and Senior Research Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, James Carafano.

Energy, Markets and Security Volume VIII, Number 2
The second issue of this volume, focuses on the critical areas of international energy markets and the security of energy supply. With Russia’s manipulation of gas supplies in Georgia and Ukraine, as well as China’s willingness to purchase energy resources from security hotspots like Sudan and Iran, a discussion on the future of energy supplies and security is of great importance to the current dialogue of diplomacy and international relations.
This issue includes a keynote contribution from the Wallace S. Wilson Fellow in Energy Studies at the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy, Amy Myers Jaffe, along with Matthew Chen, on the challenges posed by national oil companies in states such as Venezuela, Russia, and China. We are also fortunate to include the text of a speech delivered by Richard Lugar, United States Senator for Indiana, which addresses the importance of a new approach by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) to Europe’s energy security. This is followed by a keynote contribution by Thierry Legendre, policy advisor to the NATO secretary general, outlining Europe’s perspective on possible solutions to the challenges of energy dependence and vulnerability.
From Conflict to Coexistence Volume VIII, Number 1
The complexities of humanitarian crises and civil strife have long presented overwhelming challenges to the international community in confronting a society torn apart by humanity’s most destructive forces. Can the international community collectively operate through the self-interest of its individual members to prevent the greatest of atrocities? What is left to aspire to when confronting the obligation of helping a doomed state that can no longer stand on its own, and how can the world assist in the redevelopment of a properly functioning system of justice? With the potential for an independent Republic of Kosovo, the continuation of genocide in Darfur, and the ever-widening gap between Iraq and peace, the debates encountered in this issue are of great consequence to the necessity of constructing a perspective through which to approach the greatest challenges of our day. This issue, From Conflict to Coexistence, is intended to provide an in-depth introduction to some of the more challenging aspects of international peacebuilding and the promotion of lasting justice, and to evaluate various issues regarding how to repair the damage of conflicts brought about by the worst of human nature. A diverse field of perspectives is presented in this issue from distinguished authors such as: Ambassador Richard S. Williamson, Director of the United Nations University, Jean-Marc Coicaud, and president of The Fund for Peace, Dr. Pauline H. Baker.
The Changing Nature of Diplomacy Volume VII, Number 2
At the end of our seventh year, the Whitehead Journal of Diplomacy directs its attention to the Changing Nature of Diplomacy. In a new security era and a rapidly globalizing world, diplomacy has moved beyond the confines of traditional state-to- state channels. This issue seeks to contribute to the understanding of informal diplomacy, along with a broader analysis of current diplomatic challenges.
Our keynote author, Joseph V. Montville, pioneered the phrase “Track Two Diplomacy.” In his article, Montville further articulates the application and relevance of track two diplomacy; in particular, he focuses on grassroots approaches to constructing a shared history among post-conflict groups. Avnita Lakhani advocates the value of faith-based diplomacy in confronting the challenges of resolving religious conflict. Robert L. Ostergard, Jr. explores US diplomacy in the age of terrorism and oil dependency.
Our World Leaders Forum continues with Lech Walesa, Former President of Poland and Nobel Prize Laureate, who delivered a speech at Seton Hall in December 2005. We have also included a speech from Congressman Robert E. Andrews, who addressed Seton Hall University in October 2005. On the economic front, Brian N. Zeiler-Kligman examines the impact of multinational enterprises on global trade regimes.
