Peace Operations: Trends, Progress, and Prospects
On November 7th, IPI hosted a panel discussion to launch the new volume, Peace Operations: Trends, Progress, and Prospects, edited by Donald C. F. Daniel, Patricia Taft, and Sharon Wiharta (Georgetown University Press 2008).
Trends in the number and scope of peace operations since 2000 indicate heightened international appreciation for their value in crisis response and regional stabilization. Peace Operations addresses national and institutional capacities to undertake such operations by going beyond the scope of previously published literature. Building on data gathered by Georgetown University's Center for Peace and Security Studies, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), and the Folke Bernadotte Academy, the volume seeks to help policymakers and academics better understand the heterogeneous factors shaping prospects for peace operations in the coming decades.
