Spring 2007 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations
This seminar will explore historical and recent developments in UN peacekeeping. We will begin by examining the origins of UN peacekeeping and the issues surrounding multilateral intervention in civil and inter-state wars. We will then survey contrasting cases of success and failure in UN multidimensional peacekeeping in civil wars, in an effort to determine which factors were the most important determinants of the outcomes of the operations. Finally, we will discuss several current debates including: the issue of gender in peacekeeping operations; whether deadly force should be used; and recent attempts to reform and improve the UN's capacity to keep the peace.
