Collins Center Update: Volume 1, Issue 1, March 1999   [open pdf - 240KB]

"This issue of The Collins Center Update focuses on five activities. The purpose of the workshop 'Nuclear South Asia: Implications for U.S. Policy' was to assess the new nuclear reality of South Asia and to develop possible policy options for the United States. Another workshop reported on was the annual 'Streamlining the Organization for National Security' workshop. The 1998 workshop brought together senior military leaders, business leaders, and congressional staffers who critically examined the statutory Title 10 responsibilities of the services in the post-Goldwater Nichols Act environment. The Center for Strategic Leadership's (CSL) annual environmental security game focused on the energy resources, geopolitics, and environmental security of the Caspian Basin, which represents new and potentially large oil reserves set within a politically unstable region. The newsletter also reports on the biennial Adjutants General National Security Seminar (AGNSS) that was held for military advisors to the State Governor. The seminar updated the Adjutants General on critical national security issues and gave them the opportunity to interact with each other, students, and faculty. A Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) lecture series addressed the significant aspects of the United States' number one security issue. Subject matter experts addressed critical issues, including legislative and treaty constraints on WMD threat management, domestic response to WMD terrorism, the proliferation of WMD to rogue states, and its operational effects on theater warfare. The final activity was the U.S. Army War College 'International Fellows' Coalition Operations in 2010' exercise. The newsletter also contains information on activities and upcoming events and CSL publications."
