United Nations Peacekeeping Operations: Ad Hoc Missions, Permanent Engagement

Synopsis

Peacekeeping has always been one of the most visible symbols of the UN role in international peace and security, and this book explores the evolution of its peacekeeping activities, particularly since the early 1990s. It combines academic analysis, field experience, and reflection with forward-looking proposals for more effective peace operations designed and deployed by the UN in partnership with regional, sub-regional, and local agencies. The book examines: the challenges of post-cold war peacekeeping; regional experiences of peacekeeping missions, with an emphasis on the post-Soviet region and Africa; the experiences in Cambodia, former Yugoslavia, and East Timor; and the future role of the UN in peace operations.
