Quarterly Newsletter of the UNDER SECRETARIES COMMITTEE SUBCOMMITTEE ON FOREIGN AFFAIRS RESEARCH (USC/FAR) FEDERAL FUNDING OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS RESEARCH FY 1975 In response to the latest Government-wide survey by the Secretariat of the Under Secretaries Committee, Subcommittee on Foreign Affairs Research (USC/FAR), 20 departments and agencies of the Federal Government, representing 48 different research programs, reported a total of $27,818,776 in obligations for foreign affairs research in fiscal year 1975. This represents a decrease of $1,252,596 from FY 1974. A detailed breakdown of the information by individual agency appears in the tables on pages 4 and 5. Of the departments and agencies included in this year's table, five reported increases over fiscal year 1974 in their support for foreign affairs research, i.e., the National Scienee Foundation (NSF), $1,884,- 979; the Department of Defense (DOD), $899,125; the Department of Commerce, $18,057; the Depart- ment of the Treasury, $192,197; and the Federal Energy Administration; $155,092. Funding of foreign affairs research by the USC/FAR member agencies' amounted to $16,623,381 in FY 1975, down $1,543,574 from the total obligations reported by these agencies in the previous fiscal year. Agency for International Development, Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, Department of Defense, National Security Council Staff, Department of State, and U.S. Information Agency. The agencies of the Federal Gov- ernment supporting mostly basic re- search--NSF, the National Endow- ment for the Humanities (NEH), and the Smithsonian Institution? obligated a total of $6,423,849 for foreign affairs research projects in FY 1975, an increase of $1,178,045 over FY 1974. The remaining agen- cies represented on the funding table, i.e., all those not included above as either USC/FAR member agencies or basic research-sponsor- ing agencies, reported total obliga- tions for foreign affairs research in FY 1975 of $4,771,546, a decrease of $887,067 from FY 1974. As it has been for the past several years, in FY 1975 the Agency for International Development (A.I.D.) was the leading Federal agency in providing support for foreign affairs research. Figures reported by A.I.D. show a decrease in its total foreign Approved For Release 2005/08/08 : CIA-RDP86600985R000100170019-4 Approved For Release 2005/08/08 : CIA-RDP86A985R000100170019-4 affairs research ohugations of 0 U.S. Government Agency Obligations $1,648,704 for FY 1975, consider- 0 for Foreign Affairs Research, FY .1975 ably more modest than the $7 mil- lion pins decrease reported in FY 1974. Within A.I.D., amounts obli- gated for population research. bureau-funded research, and the Central Research Program increased over F Y 1974 levels; however, the amount obligated for Institutional (211d) Grants went to $700,000 in FY 1975. In second place as a source of foreign affairs research funds for the third fiscal year in a row was NSF with a total reported obligation of $5,421,537 in FY 1975. In third place was DOD, reporting a total of $3,270,036 in obligations, and in fourth place was the Department of Health. Education, and Welfare (HEW), its total FY 1975 obliga- tions of $2,282,184 representing a decline of $977,124 from FY 1974. In FY 1975, as in FY 1974, the annual funding table was compiled initially on the basis of information on foreign affairs research contracts and grants submitted by various U.S. Government agencies cooperat- ing in the current project reporting system - of the USC/FAR. Under this system, the project information is entered into the Department of State computer and later published in an annual Inventory of Govern- ment-Supported Research Projects em Foreign Affairs. On the basis of the stored project information, the computer was also able to generate a printout for each agency included in the FY 1975 Inventory. The printout listed by title for each agency subunit those foreign affairs researcn projects newly initiated, on- going, or iecently completed that were included in the current project reporting system. Also shown on each agency printout was the USC,' FAR project number and the agen- cy's assigned contract number for each project, and the amount of foreign affairs research funds, if any, obligated for each project in FY 1975, the amount obligated by each subunit, and the total amount obli- gated by the agency. liii current project reporting system is limited to foreign affairs external re- search projects that itivolve application or advancement of the soPini sciences and liii Tim miii mass these bear talbstantively on foreign and international relations. Excluded are those research projects that bear solely on U.N. domestic affairs and i hose in exclusively the physical and biological sciences and their related lechnologies.

The USC/FAR definition of foreign affairs research covers all projects dealing with some aspect of foreign areas or international affairs and in- cludes both those conducted over- seas and those carried out within the United States. Agencies were also encouraged to provide a brief current description of their research program(s) for publication along with the FY 1975 funding table. These are presented below. Not all departments and agencies included in the funding table are represented since many do not maintain continuing programs of foreign affairs research. Agency for International Develop- ment: A.I.D. carries out programs of research on and evaluation of the process of economic development in less developed countries; the factors affecting the relative success and costs of development activities; and the means, techniques, and other aspects of development assistance. Department of Agriculture: The International Programs Division of the Agricultural Research Service administers foreign research activi- ties under the Special Foreign Cur- rency Research Program and related legislation. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency: The ACDA external re- search program concentrates on spe- cialized studies in support of priority arms control issues. The selection of projects is based on consideration of the importance and respective priori- ties of the various arms control issues to be faced by the Agency and the extent to which external research can assist in their resolution. Department of Defense: The DOD contract and grant programs for for- eign area research are designed to assist in the solution of problems related to the DOD overseas mis- sions by developing knowledge about cultures, leadership and mili- tary capabilities, and intentions of other nations; to provide analysis and recommendations concerning policy studies; to develop an under- standing of significant security possi- bilities and problems which may develop over the next decade and Winter 1976 millions of dollars 40 35 30 25 20 FY I 1971 1972 1973 1974 I 1975 The above graph shows funds obligated for foreign affairs re- search by Government agenCies for FY 1971 through FY 1975. the implications for planning tech- nology development; and to develop a foundation of information on mat- ters revelant to the DOD mission. National Security Council: The external research projects supported by the NSC Staff emphasize prob- lem and opportunity analysis and policy guidance. The geographic and subject focus of this research is not constant, as a deliberate effort to retain flexibility to respond to the evolution of policy issues is main- tained. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare: Foreign affairs re- search sponsored by HEW adds an international dimension to activities serving HEW program goals in health, alcohol and drug abuse, edu- cation, rehabilitation, social security, and social welfare. Federal Energy Administration: Research in the field of international relations is conducted primarily by the Office of International. Energy Affairs. In addition to regular in- house ongoing studies by the per- manent professional staff covering energy in all its ramifications world- wide, FEA/IEA sponsored seven contract studies for FY 1975. Of these, two studies were published as parts of the International Assess- ment of Project Independence, and a third was published privately under the title, An Evaluation of the Op- tions of the U.S. Government in Its Relationship to U.S. Firms in Inter- national Petroleum Affairs. Other contract studies concerned the cost of alternative financial and institu- tional mechanisms in the United States, the impact of the oil em- bargo on Europe and Japan, the U.S. petroleum import interruption probability, and a systematic anal- ysis of Saudi Arabia's plans for in- ternational development. lk General Services Administration: The Federal Preparedness Agency of GSA along with various other as- signed responsibilities carries out research designed to explore the im- plications for civil preparedness programs of developments in weap- ons technology and changes in stra- tegic targeting doctrine by adversary powers. Department of Labor: The re- search program of the Bureau of International Labor Affairs focuses on the effects of international trade, investment, and other international developments on the economic status of U.S. workers. National Endowment for the Humanities: The Division of Re- search Grants supports original basic research and editing projects in the humanities and in those areas of the social sciences that have hu- Approved For Release 2005/08/08 : CIA-RDP86600985R000100170019-4 3 Approved For Release 2005/08/08 : CIA-RDP86&0985R000100170019-4 inanistic content and employ human- istic methods. In particular. the Division's programs are aimed at building up the materials and re- sources necessary for conducting humanistic research in the United States. Awards are made through the Division of Fellowships to free an individual so that full-time study or research can be pursued for 1 *car or less. The Office of Planning and Analysis designs and supports projects that lie outside the activities oi the other program divisions. The Youth Grants Program, which sup- ports humanities projects by persons under 30 years of age, is located within this office. National Science Foundation: NSF initiates and supports funda- mental and applied research in all the scientific disciplines, including the social and behavioral sciences. Ellis support is made through grants, ,:ontracts, and cooperative agree- nients awarded to universities and .ionprofit and other research orga- nizations. Most of this research is directed to unresolved scientific questions concerning fundamental life Processes, natural laws and phe- nomena. fundamental processes in- fluencing man's environment and the forces impacting on man as a mem- ber of society as well as on the behavior of his society. Additional research focuses on selected societal problems of national importance and contributes to the knowledge re- quired for their practical solution. Smithsonian Institution: Grants are awarded to U.S. universities and museums for basic research in the anthropologictl sciences, principally archeology; biological sciences; astrophysical and earth sciences; and museum programs in six excess for- eign currency countries. In FY 1975, 43 foreign affairs research projects were supported. Department of State: The Exter- nal Research Program, managed by the Office of External Research, Bureau of Intelligence and Research, provides a series of intellectual links between the Department of State's operating, planning, and analytical offices, on the one hand, and aca- demic institutions, individual schol- ars, and other private specialists, on the other.

Horizons Approved For Release 2005/08/08 : CIA-RDP86600985R000100170019-4 Approved For Re!eau:102005/08/08 : CIA-RDP861300985R000166170019-4 OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH: MALAYSIA The Government of Malaysia has established procedures for authoriz- ing, supervising, and evaluating re- search carried out in Peninsular Malaysia by foreign scholars. Simi- lar procedures have also been estab- lished by the state governments of Sabah and Sarawak on the island of Borneo. Among the factors consid- ered by the Malaysian Government in evaluating research applications are the sensitivity of the research topic, the seriousness of the topic in Malaysian eyes, the academic and public reputation of researchers and their sponsors, and the relationship of resc:archers and/or their sponsors to the Government or its academic institutions. Sensitive issues include: --special position of the Malays (as regarding land ownership and Government economic programs), --sovereignty of the rulers (in their respective states), ?national language (Malay) and use of other languages (Chinese, legitimate interests of non- M alays, --qualifications for citizenship, and - communal issues, including the Islamic religion. How to Apply Responsibility for approval of re- search by foreign scholars in Penin- sular Malaysia in all fields lies with the Board of National Unity. In the process of clearing fieldwork, the board, which is attached to the Prime Minister's Department, may consult with pertinent unj..ersities or research institutes within Malaysia. Procedures for handling applica- tions are as follows: Applications must be submitted through the nearest Malaysian Em- bassy, High Commission, or Con- Winter 1976 sulate on forms which they will sup- ply. Application for a visa for the period of research should be made at the same time. The four-page form is submitted in quadruplicate with four passport- size photographs. In addition to the usual personal particulars, it includes questions about the researcher's affiliations with any government, re- quests a supporting letter from the head of the sponsoring department or institution, and asks for a brief statement of the topic, scope, dura- tion, and techniques to be used. The Malaysian Foreign Service post retains one copy of the applica- tion and forwards three to the Im- migration Department in Kuala Lumpur. That department distributes one copy to the Board of National Unity and one copy to the Home Affairs Ministry. If this procedure is not followed, i.e., if researchers submit applica- tions directly to the Board of Na- tional Unity, board officials warn that delays will occur in processing. If applications are correctly sub- mitted, the minimum time for ap- proval or denial is 8 weeks. After the application is submitted, ques- tions or supplementary data may be sent directly to the board as follows: Director of Research Board of National Unity Prime Minister's Department Jalan Dato Onn Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia When foreign scholars enter Pe- ninsular Malaysia to begin approved research, they must visit the Board of National Unity to obtain a spe- cial identity card. (Extra copies of passport photos should be brought for this purpose.) At this time they must give the address of a local resi- dent who will know their where- abouts, and they are put under the nominal supervision of a relevant Government office or department of a national university. From time to time, scholars may be asked to re- port on the progress of the research. When the research is completed, the Board of National Unity may ask to review questionnaires, notes, tapes, photographs, or other mater- ial derived from the research before permission to leave is granted. Scholars must submit a summary of their research findings before leaving Malaysia and furnish the Board of National Unity with a copy of the study when completed. Sabah and Sarawak The Malaysian Federal Govern- ment does not control admission of foreign researchers into Sabah and Sarawak, nor does it have control over the state immigration offices. Scholars planning to do research in those states should write directly to the state governments at the follow- ing addresses: The Honorable Permanent Secretary to the Chief Minister Chief Minister's Department Kota Kinabalu Sabah, Malaysia The Honorable State Secretary for Sarawak Kuching Sarawak, Malaysia Letters of application to the above should contain the same type of information requested in the ap- plication form for Peninsular Malay- sia. Processing time reportedly is somewhat less?about 2 weeks. Re- searchers planning to work both in Peninsular Malaysia and in Sabah or Sarawak may make application to the two state governments after ar- rival on the peninsula, but it is rec- ommended that applications be sub- mitted simultaneously to the Federal and State Governments.

COMPUTERIZED DATA ON CHINA The U.S. Government has taken steps to enhance the availability to private scholars of its unclassified data on the People's Republic of China. In 1972 the USC/FAR (Na- tional Security Council Under Sec- retaries Committee, Subcommittee on Foreign Affairs Research) agreed on the desirability of increasing the exchange of well-ordered data be- tween the Government and the aca- demic community. Professor Davis B. Bobrow of the University of Maryland, in a study commissioned by the Department of State,' con- cluded that a full-fledged data bank would not be feasible as the instru- ment for such an exchange. He did, however, make recommendations for improving scholarly awareness of, and access to, unclassified Govern- ment data on China. Acting on these recommendations, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), has agreed to make certain unclassified computer tapes on China available for public sale. These were prepared for the use of U.S. Govern- ment officials; and their format, cov- erage, and contents are designed to meet the specific requirements of the users. The following tapes can now be ordered from the National Techni- cal Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Va. 22161: Chinese Contact File (Order #PB 248750/AS; S97.50 domestic, $122.50 foreign) This computer file identifies Chi- nese officials who have met with foreign delegations visiting the Peo- ple's Republic of China.

To finance the center and pro- mote its activities, an African Wom- en's Development Fund is being established by the ECA in collabora- tion with the All Africa Women's Conference and the United Nations and its specialized agencies. This fund will be raised from among women's organizations in Africa and the industrialized world, governmen- tal and nongovernmental organiza- tions, foundations, and individuals. African Center for Women Termed as a "path to progress for African women," the African Train- ing and Research Centre for Women was formally inaugurated in spring 1975. It grew out of the work of the Women's Programme, U.N. Eco- nomic Commission for Africa (ECA), and is located in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The center will assist governments and voluntary agencies, including women's organizations, in strengthen- ing the roles of women in the African region by integrating them more effectively into the development effort of their respective countries. It is intended to be a permanent fea- ture of the African development scene. The work of the center includes: ? Formal and apprentice in- service training; ? Organization of a volunteer corps consisting mainly of skilled African women who will serve in countries other than their own; ? Applied research in areas of greatest need, e.g., relationships be- tween education, employment, and family size; marketing and business; and national policies and legislation; and ? Production of information and resource materials for promoting the advancement of women in all sectors of society. Thus far programs of the center have included workshops in I 5 countries on the training of rural trainers and development planners on income producing activities and special programs related to food storage and preservation, communi- cations and program planning, and other subjects to improve the quality of life in rural areas. Seminars have been conducted in approximately 15 or 20 countries that have stressed the functions and services of these types of machinery and their role Fulbright-Hays Awards, 1977-78 More than 500 awards for univer- sity lecturing and postdoctoral re- search in more than 75 countries will be made to U.S. citizens for academic year 1977-78, the 30th year of the senior Fulbright-Hays program. Americans with doctorates or college teaching experience may request announcements of openings in their fields of specialization; re- quests should indicate preferred countries or areas and probable dates of availability. Those wishing to receive future announcements should ask to be placed on the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) Register of Scholars. The computerized register, which is updated regularly, currently totals some 15,000. CIES reviews more than 2,500 applications annually for openings in programs planned abroad by bina- tional educational foundations and commissions in some 45 countries and by U.S. embassies in about 45 others. Some 1,000 nominations are made each year for the more than 500 awards; about 75 percent are for lecturing and 25 percent for re- search. All Fulbright-Hays grantees are selected by the Board of Foreign Scholarships, whose members arc appointed by the President to over- see the program and to provide poli- cy guidance.
