International Peacekeeping

Forum Post 1 350 words with peer reviewed works cited (International Peacekeeping from 1988-present):

Please answer the following question, incorporating our readings and course materials from the Lessons for this week.

At the end of the Cold War, when one might have expected a period of peace and stability, we see the opposite–a noticeable increase in the number of peacekeeping operations. In the five years between 1989 and 1994, the Security Council authorized a total of 20 new operations, and an increase from 11,000 to 75,000 peacekeeping troops and civilian personnel.

Peacekeepers conducted in operations including the nations of Angola, Cambodia, El Salvador, Mozambique, Namibia – and our case study, Yugoslavia. In addition to their mandate to keep the peace their duties included helping to implement peace agreements, train and reorganize the military and police departments, supervise elections and assist in building democratic institutions.

Question: After completing our readings, please evaluate the degree of success of these missions overall. You may also comment on the reasons for the dramatic increase in peacekeeping operations. How did the theories, principles, and methodologies of UN peacekeeping help or hinder the success?
