This report is a collection of essays written in the summer of 2002 advocating and outlining an international policy of "coercive inspections” (p. 7) to ensure the elimination of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq. The authors seek to find a middle ground international policy between invasion of Iraq and permitting Saddam Hussein’s regime to retain the ability to develop WMD. The policy of coercive inspections is outlined as reinstating inspections through the United Nations Security Council; those inspections would be backed up by a threat of legitimate international use of force. Each essay analyzes a different aspect of the policy, from political requirements and consequences to lessons from past operations of the International Atomic Energy Commission (IAEA) and the United Nations Special Commission on Iraq (UNSCOM). The report was generated from a series of discussions at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and includes essays by prominent scholars as well as experts with hands-on experience in relevant organizations including the IAEA and UNSCOM.
