Peacekeeping has gradually evolved to encompass a broad range of different conflict management missions and techniques, which are incorporated under the term "peace operations." Well over 100 missions have been deployed, the vast majority within the last twenty years. This book provides an overview of the central issues surrounding the development, operation, and effectiveness of peace operations. Among many features, the book:

* Traces the historical development of peace operations from their origins in the early 20th century through the development of modern peacebuilding missions.

* Tracks changes over time in the size, mission, and organization of peace operations.

* Analyses different organizational, financial, and troop provisions for peace operations, as well as assessing alternatives.

* Lays out criteria for evaluating peace operations and details the conditions under which such operations are successful.

As peace operations become the primary mechanism of conflict management used by the UN and regional organizations, understanding their problems and potential is essential for a more secure world. Drawing on a wide range of examples from those between Israel and her neighbors to more recent operations in Somalia and the Congo, this book brings together the body of scholarly research on peace operations to address those concerns. It will be an indispensable guide for students, practitioners and general readers wanting to broaden their knowledge of the possibilities and limits of peace operations today.
