Dear Paco:

(3) Let’s discuss with Ken and other colleagues at our mtg at the Quarter
Club in Manhattan on 1/20th (Friday, 3:00 pm) how to approach to the
AfP and particularly to the CSO, since this new CSO is pretty much
similar direction with our GEWS project.

Dear Dan:

(5) You may come into this mtg via Skype from Houston, TX.

Upon a kind suggestion of Darius in Poland, you are now preparing a
paper for a book of the United Nations Conference on Trade and
Development (UNCTAD XIII) conference in Doha, Qatar in April 21-26,
2012 <>. You may include some phrases to
respond to the need indicated in the CSO movement — see the web of
the Item (2)-(b) above.

      Pls note that the deadline of this paper is next Monday (1/16th) --
      Can you send me your first draft by the noon of 1/14th
      (Saturday)? Thanks in advance.

Your previous msg once quoted Tennyson’s word “All experience is an
arch,” or like a “Life is a Merry-Go-Round Carousel” at an amusement
part, as Shakespeare said. Our approach of GEWS is now also becoming
the same as going to the original spirit of dealing with “conflict
resolution” of our GCEPG project announced at the first ICCC in
Washington, DC in October of 1972 — see References (b) and (c) above.

Keep in touch,

Best, Tak

Subject: U.S. Department of State Launches Bureau of Conflict and
Stabilization Operations

To: "'Takeshi Utsumi'" <>, "'Francisco Bozzano-
Barnes'" <>

Dear Tak & Paco,

I am in Maryland with family at the moment but work must go on! Last
week I had a meeting with the U.S. State Department’s Deputy Assistant
Secretary of State for Africa about expanding my firm Devconia’s Cross
Cultural training at State Department. He recommended the new
Bureau of Conflict and Stabilization Operations (CSO). I think however
that it could possibly incorporate the GEWS model for conflict
prevention. Please see below and let’s discuss later.

Season’s Greetings,

U.S. Department of State Launches Bureau of Conflict and
Stabilization Operations

Fact Sheet
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
November 22, 2011

Today, the U.S. Department of State established a new Bureau of Conflict
and Stabilization Operations (CSO) to focus on conflict prevention, crisis
response, and stabilization activities. The bureau will subsume the
Office of the Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization (S/CRS).
CSO advances U.S. national security by driving integrated, civilian-led
efforts to prevent, respond to, and stabilize crises in priority states,
setting conditions for long-term peace. The bureau emphasizes
sustainable solutions guided by local dynamics and actors. CSO
promotes unity of effort, the strategic use of scarce resources, and
burden-sharing with international partners. The bureau’s
comprehensive approach will help the State Department anticipate and
adapt to the security challenges of the 21st century, while supporting
America’s leadership in emerging crises.
CSO will seek to:
1. Get ahead of change. While the scale and types of future crises
cannot be predicted, the complex nature and cascading effects of 21st
century challenges require a more forward-looking State Department.
CSO will support the State Department’s ability to anticipate major
security challenges by providing timely, operational solutions.
2. Drive an integrated response. CSO will build integrated approaches
to conflict prevention and stabilization by linking analysis, planning,
resources, operational solutions, and active learning and training. The
bureau will call on its civilian responders to deploy in a timely manner
to areas of instability in order to bring the right mix of expertise to each
unique situation.
3. Leverage partnerships. CSO will work with a range of non-
governmental and international partners to prevent conflict, address
sources of violence, build on existing resiliencies, and promote burden-
sharing. In particular, CSO will encourage greater involvement of local
civil society – including women, youth, and the media – to prevent and
respond to conflict.

Dear Takeshi,
my best wishes for a wonderful 2012 to you, Hisae and our colleagues.
I did not receive any feedback from Prof. Guehenno yet, but I am planning to get in contact with
him soon for following up to my research. I will definitely remind him about your request.
All the best!

PS Another option is getting in contact with AC4 at Columbia. Their work is relevant to what
GLOSAS does and they may be interested in hosting the event. Please have a look at their
