Centre’s Initial Work Program

Smart Power
  • ‘... we must use what has been called “smart power” – the full range of tools at our disposal – diplomatic, economic, military, political, legal and cultural – picking the right tool, or combination of tools, for each situation ...’
    • US Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, 13 Jan 2009
  • ‘The trauma of fragile states and the interconnections of globalisation require our generation to recognise anew the nexus among economics, governance, and security ... we need to integrate a variety of tools – military, political, legal, developmental, financial, and technical – and a variety of actors, including states, international organisations, civil society and the private sector’
    • World Bank President, Robert B Zoellick, 12 Sep 2008
