Organization for International Cooperation
DescriptionWhat will it take to effectively prevent or resolve the many security, humanitarian and environmental threats we face today? Why are our foreign policymakers not attaining the level of international cooperation needed to solve these challenges?
The effective resolution of any type of challenge requires that the problem solver is able to accurately identify what is interfering with their problem solving efforts. So why are foreign policymakers and other important officials not recognizing what is missing? For the most part they are highly trained, dedicated and experienced. These things are not the problem.
History has proven many times that human beings have limitless potential. Until the last century man could not travel through the skies, underwater and to the Moon. We could not directly communicate with each other at great distances.
While we have limitless potential we also have various levels of conscious awareness which makes certain challenges difficult to resolve. So again, if we cannot recognize what is interfering with our efforts to solve problems they obviously remain unresolved.
If the problem is a difficult game of monopoly or our favorite team is losing the worst thing that will happen will be short term frustration.
If the problem is armed conflict, impending genocide or a terrorist attack with chemical weapons the consequences will mean a tremendous loss of life, massive numbers of people injured, the loss of infrastructure, overwhelming financial losses and regional instability or chaos.
Let us not forget the possibility of a nuclear attack by a radical nuclear armed government with leaders out of control.
If we are to survive as a species, it is extremely important that our leaders and all other key government problem solvers become infinitely more capable of identifying what is needed to resolve our most serious security, humanitarian and environmental challenges.
There is good news in that during the last 40 years researchers developed extraordinary short group programs in the private sector that dramatically expand human conscious awareness.
The programs can make it possible for foreign policymakers to accurately identify issues or factors undermining policies, negotiations, strategies and implementation plans. They can make it possible to formulate highly effective policies and strategies. They can give negotiators the ability to recognize pre-existing bias or issues that would diminish their ability to generate a successful outcome.
The bottom line is that it is possible to effectively prevent or resolve our greatest challenges despite perceived obstacles.
ResponsibilitiesSpecial Assistants 1-Make calls to government and multilateral institution officials to explain our work. Those based in New York, Washington or other world capitals may also meet with officials depending on project needs. 2-Special Assistants post our volunteer positions on university job-sites. 3-They will soon again support our 3 social media platforms through writing, posting articles and videos, etc. The platforms are currently being restructured.
4-Special Assistants research and support our development of global media contacts. 5-They also support our Advisory Member development efforts. 6-Some Special Assistants work on our human trafficking research and advocacy program.
Requirements1-An applicant who clearly understands the current and potential consequences of having a world where major threats are not being resolved and is willing to do whatever is necessary to contribute towards their resolution.
2-An applicant who recognizes that since Hiroshima the threats we face continue to expand in numbers and in the level of danger they present. Ex. Terrorists in 70 countries. Terrorist seeking WMDs. 9 nuclear armed states with a few led by erratic, dangerous or dysfunctional leaders. Conflicts throughout the Arab world, in South Asia and throughout Central Africa. Tensions in the Far East.
3-An applicant who wants to participate in efforts to see the many humanitarian tragedies we have effectively resolved. Ex. The abuse of human rights and international criminal organizations trafficking in women and children. There are massive food and water shortages in Africa where millions are suffering. There are millions of refugees displaced and living in squalor due mainly because of conflicts.
4-An applicant who clearly understands that their own future survival is at risk because of the global threats that are not being resolved. There is no doubt that the 3000 Americans who died on 9-11 were previously oblivious to global threats and likely had little serious concern about terrorism and international relations.
There are many forms of denial in our world that has killed millions.
5-An applicant who recognizes the extreme importance of supporting government and multilateral institution officials in developing the ability to produce breakthrough results.
Who should NOT pursue our Special Assistant position........
1-Applicants far more concerned about their personal desires, concerns and convenience than being part of ending conflicts and human suffering. There are many seeking internships or volunteer positions who express their concern in words and not in action. These are applicants we seek to avoid.
2-Applicants who are not resourceful in solving problems or who do not follow directions carefully.
3-Applicants who do not honor their promises and agreements.
