This volume explores the evolution of United Nations efforts at peace-keeping, particularly since the early 1990s. Peacekeeping has always been one of the most visible symbols of the UN role in international peace and security, and it was disappointment with the performance of UN peacekeeping operations that was to become symbolic of the UN's failure to emerge from the ashes of the Cold War as a rejuvenated key player in international and, increasingly, internal peace and security. This volume reflects some of the thinking, some of the experiences in the UN and in the field, some of the frustrations and some of the hopes of this past decade. 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, subregional and local actors.
