DSpace Repository

The Notre Dame University-Louaize Institutional Repository, known as DSpace, is a digital archive of the university's intellectual output accessible to others worldwide over the Internet. The institutional Repository contains a collection of research and publications written by academic authors, students, staff, alumni and research groups that have sufficient quality to be collected and preserved by the Library but which are not controlled by commercial publishers.

Notre Dame University members are eligible to engage in self-archiving of their digitally-born materials within the institutional repository. For self-archiving please review the Guidelines, Thesis Submission and the Submission Guidelines pages.

OR, you can email the publications you would like to add to: specialcollections@ndu.edu.lb

    This thesis intends to demonstrate that the so-called 'War on Terrorism" is used by the United States as an instrument of its foreign policy to promote changes in the Middle East. The two main pillars of this strategy are: the promotion of democracy and the fight against terrorism. However, an assessment of the policy shows that it has failed. It has failed so far to control and/or eliminate terrorist groups and the Global Jihad. It has failed mainly because of the lack of a clear evidence to prove the fact that the promotion of democracy will help to control terrorism or to induce ...

    The first cooperative efforts toward international action were made in the twentieth century in order to prevent the spread of diseases from one region to another. The subsequent institutionalization of these efforts gave birth to the World Health Organization. As the necessity for a single worldwide health system came to be recognized and felt as a pressing need to preserve the highest standards of health, WHO was seen as a way to satisfy this need. Also, the concept of "health for all", embodied by WHO, is fundamental to the attainment of peace, welfare and security of nations. The assumption ...

    With the current rising trend in wireless based systems, applications such as video on demand, remote monitoring and surveillance are now being used in greater abundance. Coupled with this growth comes the ongoing need for improved network performance. This is due to the resource hungry nature of video data which places stringent requirements on communication networks. This study investigates performance improvement for remote surveillance applications over hybrid 2-stage disordering networks. It specifically focuses on resequencing alternatives for video data. A resequencing and batch aggregation ...

    Four days after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait on the 2nd of August 1990, the Security Council subjugated Iraq to a series of financial and trade sanctions. Since then, comprehensive and partial sanctions became the security Council's favourite arm-twisting tool used at sixteen instances and against eleven countries compared to only two cases during its first forty-five years of operation. Economic sanctions fall theoretically somewhere between diplomacy and war. Their effectiveness as a coercive measure depends on multiple parameters concerning the socio-economic structure of the sanctioned state. ...
