Sample text

But they are no less subject to non-physical pressures from larger states than hitherto. buffer zone. An area lying between two hostile (and often recentlybelligerent) states or groups in which neither of them maintains armed forces. There is thus a dividing zone of territory between their forces, which reduces the likelihood of accidental conflict and may contribute to a calmer disposition on one or both sides. However, to provide a form of guarantee that neither will take advantage of the buffer zone by suddenly introducing its forces into it, a neutral body – such as the United Nations – will very probably be asked to establish a small and lightly-armed *peacekeeping force in the zone.

Bottom line. The least for which a party to a *negotiation will settle; as far down as one can be pushed. boudoir diplomacy. A manner of conducting business aspired to by certain ambassadors at courts where one or more women were influential, or where a queen or empress ruled, as for example in St Petersburg during the reign of Catherine II of Russia in the late eighteenth century. Modelling themselves no doubt on Castiglione’s courtier, their object was, by flirtatiousness and skill in what Lord Chesterfield described to his son as ‘the art of pleasing’, to contrive admission to the room where only intimate friends were admitted – the boudoir.

Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). An association of 12 of the *sovereign states which emerged following the break-up of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1991. Russia is its leading member; the exSoviet Baltic republics have not joined. The CIS provides a framework for such cooperative activity as can be agreed in the three-monthly meetings of its *heads of government, and in other ministerial meetings. Its affairs are conducted on a *multilateral basis rather than by central institutions.
