The United Nations and Peacekeeping: Results, Limitations and Prospects

Indar Jit Rikhye and Kjell Skjelsbaek, eds. (Macmillan, 1990)

 

 

The 1988 Nobel Peace Prize has thrown into sharp relief the significant role United Nations' peacekeepers have played on the international stage since the first operation 40 years ago.  This revealing volume takes stock of our peacekeeping past and present and considers its future.  It gives an insider's look at management and financing issues, the views of troop-contributing countries and the effect of operations on peacekeepers and local populations.  Building on a mood of optimism for operations in Namibia, Cambodia and the Western Sahara, this volume strengthens the case for peacekeeping in a viable system for international peace and security.
